A MAN caught with almost £4million of drugs in his Whitecrook home has been locked up for 40 months.

Kevin Dallas was caught after a raid at a house in McCreery Street in March this year.

The huge haul included £3.3m of cocaine, £124,000 of cannabis as well more than £40,000 of heroin.

Police also seized 800,000 Etizolam pills valued at £409,000.

A judge today heard how Dallas was holding the drugs after “allowing himself to be used by others”.

The 45-year-old – who previously worked as a driver, including for school-children – was today jailed at the High Court in Glasgow.

He had previously pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of the drugs.

Lord Mulholland told him: “Without people like you, the drug supply chain will be weakened. You don't need me to tell you that.”

Dallas blew a kiss to relatives in court as he was led handcuffed to the cells.

A hearing was told how police had turned up at the flat after being alerted to a disturbance.

It was “immediately apparent” drugs were being stored there.

Dallas could not initially be traced – but he later turned up at a police station.

John Scullion, defending, today said the crime was “out of character” for the dad.

The QC added: “He allowed himself to be used by others whom he owed money to.

“He agreed to store drugs, but was unaware of the quantity and value.

“He did not benefit financially from involvement in this offence.”

Lord Mulholland said the jail-term would have been five years, but for the guilty plea.
