Jailed for eight years for drug offences

A 32-YEAR-OLD Arbroath man was jailed for eight years at the High Court in Edinburgh on Monday for drug offences.

When Matthew MacDougall was arrested by police on August 10 of this year, they recovered around half a kilo of heroin worth £50,000 and other drugs paraphernalia from him.

Lord Uist sentenced him to five years for the offence as well as ordering him to serve an unexpired three years of a previous sentence.
