A MAN was caught with a large stash of heroin in his pocket - as well as £9000 stuffed inside a Weetabix box.

Paul Greenhalgh, 38, was snared by police on the M74 near Bothwell, Lanarkshire, in February this year.

Officers seized £70,000 of the class A drug and discovered bundles of banknotes hidden in the cereal box.

They also found another £4900 in the Vauxhall car that he was driving.

Greenhalgh now faces a lengthy prison sentence after admitting at Glasgow High Court that he was involved in the supply of heroin.
