Despicable Drug Addict

A despicable drug addict broke into our building during the week looking for a quiet corner to cook up his 'junk', despite the warm Mediterranean weather outside.

But things didn't quite go according to plan because the chap was disturbed and bolted from the building leaving a mess behind - his drug paraphernalia, his mobile phone, specs and blood on the wall. 

The incident was reported same day to Police Scotland who advised they were too busy to attend and that the residents should contact Glasgow City Council about the mess and potentially infectious drug paraphernalia.

Now the mobile phone and other items would no doubt have contained fingerprints and other evidence capable of tracking down the culprit - who would probably be known to the police already.

Yet this seemed to be of no interest whatsoever to Police Scotland which is pretty dispiriting given all the talk about fighting crime and tackling anti-social behaviour.

So I plan to raise this incident with Scotland's chief constable, Iain Livingstone, to see what he has to say.
