North Yorkshire County Council PR man is held in drug probe

A TOWN HALL spin doctor has been quizzed over allegations of importing controlled drugs, the Sunday Sun can today reveal.

Martin Thomas, a trusted spokesman at a Conservative-led council in the North, has been arrested after two packages of the party drug GBL – known on the street as ‘coma in a bottle’ – were allegedly imported and sent to his town hall office and flat.

The 38-year-old has now been suspended from his influential position as communications and research officer for the Tory council after task force detectives raided his property.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire County Council said: “North Yorkshire County Council can confirm that a member of staff, who is the subject of an investigation by officers of the UK Border Agency, has been suspended from his post. “The investigation does not relate to the member of staff’s work for the authority.” 

My comment: Using his town hall office to receive drugs rather suggests that the investigation does relate to his work. Or at least the lack of it whilst engaged in his alleged nefarious activities.
