THE drug dealer who supplied ecstasy which killed tragic Glasgow teen Chelsea Bruce has been locked up for over six years.
Lewis Reid, 22, sold crystallised MDMA to pals of Chelsea , 16, who collapsed at a party and died after taking a hit.
Known as Gucci, the thug was also convicted for speeding off in his motor while ex-girlfriend Codey Brown was still leaning through the window during a row.
Tragic Codey was found dead aged 18 seven months later in a Kilmarnock park.

He pleaded guilty to 22 charges at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court back in November.
And today he was back at Edinburgh’s High Court to learn his fate.
Sentencing the callous dealer to six years and six months in jail, Lord Arthurson told him: “These offences were committed between August 2018 and July 2019 and in respect of each you were at the time the subject of between one and five bail orders.
“You have accrued a relatively short but recent criminal record, all at summary level.
“The author of the background report prepared in the present case has formed the view that you have minimised your responsibility in respect of at least some of your offending.
“You have a history of polydrug misuse.
“On any view there is no possible alternative in your case to a substantial custodial sentence.
“I consider that you present a high risk of reoffending and of causing serious harm to the public at large, as is apparent from the nature and scale of your offending in this case, particularly in respect of (i) your involvement in the supply of class A controlled drugs, and (ii) an appalling catalogue of dangerous driving by you.

“Consecutive to the last mentioned period of imprisonment, you will serve, in respect of each of charges 32 and 46, being the gravest charges before the Court today and involving the supply by you of the class A controlled drug known as Ecstasy, it being in respect of charge 32 a matter of agreed fact in the narrative before the Court that one of the females who took the drug supplied by you died as a result of taking it, albeit that your act of supply was not to her but to another individual, concurrent periods of 3 years imprisonment, discounted from periods of 4 years.
“I should add that in respect of all of these discounted periods I have elected to apportion nominally a single period of 3 months to the various bail aggravations libelled.”
Back in November, we exclusively revealed that Reid was still pushing high purity cocaine from his Snapchat account, despite being locked up.
