A JAILED drug trafficker who was caught with cannabis worth more than £100,000 was ordered to hand over £6,000 crime profits this week.

Yoker man James Gibson, 44, was snared during an investigation into an organised crime gang.

During a raid on his flat police recovered a "tick list" linked to drugs transactions and a phone was found which was discovered to contain messages related to herbal cannabis supply.

A 10.5kg haul of the Class B drug was made which had a street value of £105,000.

Gibson was jailed for four years after he admitted being concerned in the supply of herbal cannabis between November 21, 2017, and February 14, last year, at Laswade Street, and elsewhere. He has previous convictions for drugs offences.

Following his latest conviction, the Crown raised proceedings to seize crime proceeds from him.

During a brief hearing at the High Court in Edinburgh on Monday, November 25, a judge was told that a settlement has been reached in the action.

Advocate depute Dan Byrne said that under the terms of the settlement a confiscation order should be made for £6412.95 and Lord Boyd of Duncansby made the order.

Gibson, who is presently in Greenock prison, was kept handcuffed during his appearance in the dock for the hearing.
