Another one you just couldn’t make up..
A man who tried to smuggle over £84,000 of ecstasy into Scotland hidden in cat food has been jailed for more than four years.
Toby Bishop, 21, was caught after a UK Border Force worker examined a parcel sent from Germany to his home in Angus.
Police raided the Glenogil house and found a cannabis cultivation with a street value of £11,250. His phone messages also indicated drug dealing.
Bishop admitted being involved in the supply of ecstasy and cannabis.
The court heard the parcel, which was declared as Adult Brakes cat food, was intercepted at Coventry’s International Postal Hub in July last year.
When the parcel was examined it revealed 8,400 ecstasy tablets.
Judge Lord Braid sentenced Bishop to four years and two months in prison, telling him: “A significant custodial sentence is the only sentence available to the court.”
