Two jailed for drug dealing

TWO men were jailed by Sheriff Kenneth Robb in Stranraer this week after admitting involve­ment in supplying drugs.

Jamie Keenan, 21, a prisoner at Polmont, and 19-year-old Ethan Mitchell, from Bradford, admitted supplying cannabis at various addresses in the town between April 1 and 11 last year.

Keenan also admitted assaul­ting Liam Allison at the Glebe Cemetery and Mitchell pled guilty to assaulting David Kyle in Old Port Avenue.

The court heard the two men were part of a bigger operation that involved a substantial amount of money. The case had been long and complicated with Keenan’s solicitor having to listen to 18 tapes of evidence.

Sentencing Keenan to a total prison sentence of 16 months and 55 days, Sheriff Robb said this had been a commercial drugs 
operation Keenan had a major part in. Mitchell was sentenced of 12 months and 90 days.
