Ul-Haq, 31, of Fulmar Brae, Livingston, was jailed for four and a half years in 2007 for a cocaine offence but was freed in the summer of 2009.

While out from prison on licence, Ul-Haq, who worked in the family Costcutter store, in Blackburn, West Lothian, returned to the illegal cocaine trade last year. He will be sentenced next month.

Police recovered two consignments worth more than £140,000 being delivered by couriers linked to Ul-Haq.
