Coke ‘factory’ man is jailed

Have your say

A WEST Lothian man who was caught in a police raid on a cocaine “cutting shop” has been jailed for four years.

Officers found Paul Mc- Sherry, 32, lying on a bed in the house in Lesmahagow, in Lanarkshire, while others tried to escape through a back door.

Police recovered three kilos of the Class A drug worth £122,000 on the streets along with a press and mixing agents to bulk out the cocaine for sale.

Unemployed McSherry, of Burnvale, Livingston, earlier admitted being concerned in the supply of the drug on October 28 last year at a house in Church Square, in Lesmahagow.

Judge Lord Turnbull yesterday told him at the High Court in Edinburgh he would have faced a five-year sentence for the drugs offence but for his guilty plea.
