THE son of a murdered gangster was given acommunity service order yesterday after police caught him with cannabis worth more than £4000. Joseph Hanlon Jnr, 23, was arrested after officers raided his home in Hamilton following an anonymous tip-off. Police found nearly 700grams of powerful skunk cannabis in a Transit van parked in his driveway during the raid in October 2010. Hanlon, who was arrested four months later, admitted dealing cannabis. At Hamilton Sheriff Court yesterday, he was ordered to carry out 300 hours of community service. His father, Joe “Bananas” Hanlon, 23, was gunned down in 1991, along with friend Bobby Glover, 31, in one of Scotland’s most notorious unsolved murder cases. They were both shot in a revenge attack in 1991 after crime godfather Arthur Thompson’s son, Arthur Jnr, was gunned down.
