A Craigneuk dad has been convicted of drug dealing after heroin worth £4,300 was found hidden in a motorbike glove in his flat.
Marish Glewinski claimed he knew nothing about the Class A drug, but prosecutor Barry Dunne said the evidence against him was ‘overwhelming’.
Glewinski (46), of Winning Quadrant, was found guilty of being concerned in the supply of heroin in December last year after trial at Hamilton Sheriff Court.
The court heard the heroin was consistent with having been processed by a hydraulic press which was also found in the flat. Digital scales and polythene bags which also pointed to drug dealing were seized too.
Mr Dunne said Glewinski lived alone in the flat and must have known about the heroin. He told the jury: “Christmas is referred to as the season of miracles and Mr Glewinski is pinning his hopes on a miracle here.
“Despite overwhelming evidence he hopes some of you will be gullible enough to swallow his story that a big boy did it and ran away.”
The jury returned a unanimous guilty verdict. Glewinski, who is on bail, will be sentenced on January 3.
