Well, here’s some Scottish news for ya, including a wee lamb, takeaway chips and £10,000 worth of heroin and cocaine. Thankfully, the lamb is innocent in all of this, as three people were arrested by the police on top of the driver failing to pass the roadside swap for cocaine.
This bizarre incident happened at 6:10pm on Saturday, April 22 on Glasgow M74 junction 3. The car was stopped by the police, with the lamb in the back next to some chips topped with what looked like a very scarce amount of ketchup (yes, we’re judging), heading northbound on the carriageway.
Upon police inspection, police dogs found £7,000 worth of cocaine, as well as £3,000 worth of heroine in the car. As a result, three people in total were arrested, two men aged 52 and 53 and a woman aged 38 in connection with the situation.
We can confirm that the lamb is okay and healthy, as a local farmer has taken the wee soul in. However, the investigation is ongoing not only for the illegal class A drug activity, but also on how the poor lamb ended up at the back of the car in the first place. We hope it didn’t try those horrible looking chips, though…
Road Policing Scotland also kept a sense of humour by tweeting about what happened on Twitter, saying: “Oh ewe! Officers from #GlasgowRP stopped this vehicle (not a Lamborghini!) on the #M74 J3 NB yesterday. In addition to this wee fella roughly £10k in Class A drugs were recovered with assistance from @PSOSDogs. Driver further arrested for failing the roadside swap for cocaine.
“The lamb has been taken in by a local farmer and enquiries are continuing to establish how the lamb ended up in the car. #PDBilly was instrumental in finding the drugs in this car.”
The police also shared a picture of the good boy Police Dog Billy who found the drugs and was the key contributor in the case. Look at him!
What is more, Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Officers in Glasgow have seized drugs with a potential value of £10,000 from a vehicle on the M74 northbound. Around 6.10pm on Saturday, 22 April, 2023, officers stopped a car on the M74 northbound carriageway, near J3.”
“The three occupants of the vehicle were arrested and a search of the car was carried out with assistance from the Dog Unit. PD Billy entered the car and indicated drugs were present. Officers recovered heroin, with an estimated street value of £7,000 and cocaine, worth an estimated value of £3,000.”
“Two men, aged 52 and 53 and one woman, aged 38, were arrested and charged with drugs offences. They have been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.”
