Alan Johnston received his award for having the highest amount of drug seizures in a year

Alan Johnston has worked in Missoula Glasgow for two years, he is a valued member of the team.
He has received his award for having the highest amount of drug seizures in a year. (OVER 100)

I was a proud manager when I told him he was getting this award as no one else within the company has seized so many drugs, to my surprise Alan got very emotional and shed a tear. Alan " all I was doing was my job and it's so unexpected"

All the team at Missoula congratulated him and after a post on his Facebook he has been overwhelmed with praise from family, friends and staff.
