Ecstasy dealer who sold deadly dose to schoolgirl, 14, faces jail

A young man is facing jail after selling ecstasy to a 14-year-old schoolgirl who died after taking the party drug with her friends.

Drug dealer Thomas Lamont, 18, pocketed £45 when he sold six tablets to Zoe Bremner and her pals, a court heard.

Zoe, from Glasgow, took ill shortly after taking two of the tablets supplied by Lamont.

The teen couldn’t walk and appeared to take a fit, and she was pronounced dead minutes after paramedics arrived at a flat to help her, the Daily Record reports.

The emergency services found her when they were called to a flat in Cowcaddens, Glasgow, last June.

A post-mortem revealed the cause of death was ecstasy.

Lamont, from Knightswood, Glasgow, pleaded guilty on Monday to being concerned in supply of the Class A on a street in the city’s Drumchapel last June 10.

Another 18-year-old, Stephen Selkirk, from Yoker, Glasgow, also admitted to being concerned in the supply of ecstasy to four 15-year-olds last year.

Glasgow Sheriff Court heard how Zoe and her friends had agreed to try a new “stronger” ecstasy tablet called "capital hardcore" before tragedy struck.

Sheriff Johanna Johnston QC deferred sentence and bailed Lamont and Selkirk.

But she warned them: “Each of you has accepted your guilt of a very serious offence.

"This court has repeatedly said that people who deal in drugs, in particular Class A drugs will face severe punishment."
