A drug dealer, operating out of a Dalgety Bay business unit, has been jailed.

Jonathan Haughian, described as a “mid-level drugs dealer” was caught with a stash of drugs, including 400 chocolate bars laced with cannabis, in a shipping container at an industrial park.

Haughian, 31, of Hillwood Crescent, Ratho, latterly living in Inverness, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

A jury found Haughian guilty of drug offences after a trial there in November.

The drug dealing offences were committed between April 1, 2019, and May 14, 2020, at Unit 5, Dalgety Bay Business Centre, Ridge Way, Hillend; Clyde Crescent, Dunfermline and elsewhere.

Haughian was concerned in the supply of cannabis, cocaine and Tetrahydrocannabinol.

Between the same dates at Dalgety Bay Business Centre, he was concerned in the supply of etizolam.

The herbal cannabis seized had an estimated value of £12,200 to £19,400.

The cannabis edibles were valued at £8060 to £12,000. The estimated value for the etizolam was £680 and the cocaine £200.

Haughian was also convicted of an assault on a man in Rosyth.

On January 2, 2021, at Tyrwhitt Place, Rosyth, he assaulted a man by reaching into his car and trying to remove the keys from the ignition, struck him on the head and body, all to his injury.

On this matter, defence solicitor Alan Davie said: “He had received information that the complainer was involved in the sale of drugs to his cousin’s son.

“He was visiting the area that day, saw this man and took the opportunity to confront him.”

Sheriff Charles Macnair commented: “It’s a bit ironic, given the other case.”

He jailed Haughian for a total of three years and 186 days.

The sheriff told him: “The evidence pointed to you being a mid-level dealer.”
