Peterhead drug dealer found with taser and air rifle in home jailed for two years

Peterhead drug dealer found with taser and air rifle in home jailed for two years

A Peterhead drug dealer who was found with a taser and an air rifle in his home has been jailed for two years.

Police received intelligence that the home of Pawel Sobczynski was being used to supply cocaine and carried out a raid in April this year.

In doing so, they discovered 14 grams of cocaine and benzocaine in various locations such as a tin of Heinz tomato soup.

They also found a taser in his bedroom and an air rifle in a box above his wardrobe.

While being arrested by officers at his property on Duncan Crescent in Peterhead, he admitted that all the items in question belonged to him.

Sobczynski confessed to being in possession of two prohibited weapons and dealing drugs during an earlier appearance at Aberdeeen Sheriff Court where he returned yesterday to be sentenced.

Fiscal depute Stephanie Ross said: “The total amount of benzocaine and cocaine was 14.69 grams which was worth between £660 and £950.”

Representing the 34-year-old, defence agent Keidra Morrison said the taser had been purchased in Eastern Europe where it is not prohibited and was being used for protection in his home from the threat of nearby drug users.

She also said the air rifle was used recreationally.

She added: “He appreciates that ignorance of the law is no excuse.

“Mr Sobczynski appreciates the seriousness of the charges he faces today.”

Imposing a sentence, Sheriff Brown said: “These are extremely serious charges.

“You had the taser for your own protection when in your home Class A drugs were being held.

“I am satisfied that only a custodial sentence is appropriate.”

He also ordered forfeiture of the taser and air rifle.
