Naked drug dealer makes daring bid for freedom during cannabis bust


A man fled naked from a house in New Stevenston during a cannabis bust.

Stephen McLean escaped on to the roof via an upstairs window, but injured himself in the process and was captured a short time later.

McLean, 28, of Burn Crescent, New Stevenston, avoided a prison sentence at Hamilton Sheriff Court this week.

He admitted being concerned in the supply of cannabis at another house in the same street and elsewhere between December 2017 and May last year.

Sheriff Thomas Millar ordered him to do 240 hours of unpaid community work and imposed a four-month electronic tag.

This bans McLean from leaving the house between 7pm and 7am each day.

The sheriff also ordered forfeiture of £7,850 seized during the police raid.
