A PAISLEY man smuggled two drug-filled Kinder Eggs into Barlinnie to feed his "horrendous addiction".

Anthony Lindie, 51, was later caught with the heroin in his cell.

The incident happened on October 10, 2015.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court last week, Lindie admitted having diamorphine in his possession at the prison.

In defence, it was explained that the accused had taken drugs for 33 years but has since got clean.

Lindie's lawyer stated: "It's three years down the line. He's absolutely turned things around."

The accused is now engaging with support and is a trained boxer, manager and promoter.

Sheriff Lindsay Wood asked: "Is this a good thing?"

The defence agent replied that the accused was helping recovering addicts.

Lindie, of Barterholm Road, was sentenced to a Community Payback Order with 80 hours of unpaid work to be completed within four months.

Sheriff Wood praised the accused for staying clear of drugs, adding: "Keep it up."
