Drug dealer snared thanks to bugged BMW

dailyrecord.co.uk

A DRUG boss was snared after buying a bugged BMW from a cocaine dealer.

Brian McCulloch, 39, was involved in a multi-millionpound scam, along with Steven Caddis, 30, Stephen Jamieson, 26, and Gary Caddis, 28.

They were put under surveillance during Operation Lockdown, which involved scores of officers from August 2007 to February 2009.

During that time, a listening device was planted in the BMW X5 while it belonged to Jamieson. But he sold the vehicle to McCulloch.

Prosecutor Iain McSporran told the High Court in Glasgow: "This may not have been the happiest purchase he has ever made."

Dog Much of the talk heard on the bug focused on wealth accumulated from the drug trade.

In December 2007, Jamieson was heard discussing going to West Lothian to buy a £115,000 Lamborghini.

Another time, McCulloch talked about someone called Jake who he supplied with cocaine and who made £48,000 a month.
