‘Refreshingly honest’ dealer who ran Perth drug den will be sent home to Poland

Perth Sheriff Court.
Perth Sheriff Court.

A dealer who moved from Poland to set up a drug den in a housing association flat has been ordered to hand over more than £5,000 before he is booted out of Scotland.

Kamil Morawski has been told to pay back £5,460 he made dealing drugs from the flat in Perth.

Morawski, who was described as “refreshingly honest” when a sheriff jailed him for four and a half years, will also be extradited back to Poland

Morawski bluntly told police who raided his Perth home that he was a drug dealer and had been in business for months.

Perth Sheriff Court was told Morawski was given a housing association flat when he moved to Scotland and used it to set up a large-scale drug den peddling ecstasy, speed and cannabis.

Morawski, 31, was found with £40,000 worth of drugs after converting the flat into the centre of his drug dealing operation.

The father of one – who had served prison terms in his homeland for drug-related crimes – was caught with nearly two kilos of speed, worth nearly £20,000.

He had more than 1,000 ecstasy tablets and more than a kilo of cannabis in the McCallum Court flat.

Depute fiscal Charmaine Gilmartin told Perth Sheriff Court 1,120 ecstasy tablets were recovered with a potential value of £11,200, along with 1,945 grammes of amphetamine worth £19,450.

The total cannabis recovered weighed 1,309 grammes and had a maximum value of £13,090. Morawski had also stuffed more than £5,000 cash under his mattress.

She said: “The accused gave full answers, stating that he was a drug dealer and sold cannabis, amphetamine and E.

“He stated he had been dealing for around six months for financial gain.”

Morawski, a prisoner at Perth, admitted three charges of being concerned in the supply of cannabis, amphetamine and ecstasy between January 31 and July 31 last year.

Solicitor David Sinclair, defending, said: “He was seeking to improve his family’s life and took a short way of doing so. ”

Sheriff Lindsay Foulis said: “You have held your hands up and accepted responsibility at the earliest stage.

“You do not shy away from taking responsibility.

“Nor do you try and mask your reasons for your actions in any way and such honesty, to put it bluntly, is refreshing.”
