LOCAL drug dealer Tom Logan insists on using the word ‘yoghurts’ as a code for weed.
28-year-old small time criminal Logan believes the substitute term will protect him in the highly unlikely event that police are tapping his phone.
Drugs buyer Mary Fisher said: “According to Tom’s system a ‘yoghurt’ is an eighth of weed.
“So, for example, you might ring up and ask for ‘three yoghurts please’. Which is probably more suspicious than just saying ‘please may I have some cannabis’. Who wants a yoghurt at 3am?”
“Similarly an eighth of hash is referred to as ‘a violin’. And if he’s run out he’ll say ‘sorry I’m feeding my mum’s parrot’.
“This is all a total waste of time but if you don’t humour him he goes mental.”
Logan said: “I’m not dealing, I just collect classical instruments and tend to overstock on Muller products, so people use me as a go-to.
“But if you are calling me for some yoghurts, I’ll meet you in the leisure centre car park in twenty minutes – keep your phone on.
“The yoghurts are £25 each.”
