A DEALER jailed for peddling a lethal drug dubbed the Blue Plague has had his wilful fire-raising case binned.

Gary Jamieson, 34, was due to go on trial charged with torching three vans in January 2019.

Jamieson, the brother of Glasgow crime figure Stephen 'Jimmy' Jamieson, is currently serving four years for running the country's biggest network of fake Vallium.

The father-of-five cocaine addict was snared last year following an undercover police surveillance investigation.

Jamieson, of Pollok, and co-accused John Mack, flooded the city with 800,000 etizolam tablets known as the Blue Plague.

Jamieson went on to face separate accusations with setting fires to three vehicles in Pollok.

He was alleged to have torched two Mercedes-Benz Sprinters and Ford Transit vans on Netherplace Road in January 18, 2019.

The charges state he "wilfully set fire to the motor vehicles and the fire took effect thereon and did cause damage to said vehicles."

But, when the trial was due to call at Glasgow Sheriff Court, the case was "not called" and the charges were dropped.

A spokesman for the Crown Office said: “The Crown has a duty to keep cases under review and after full and careful consideration of the facts and circumstances of the case, the procurator fiscal concluded there should be no further proceedings.

“The Crown reserves the right to take action should further evidence become available.”
