They were arrested in September 2022 following the execution of warrants at a number of addresses in the Seaton area of Aberdeen and in Birmingham.

Heroin, crack cocaine and herbal cannabis with an estimated street value of £18,500 were recovered along with various mobile phones and a three figure sum of cash.

This followed an intelligence led investigation into County Lines drug trafficking involving both cities. Officers were assisted by colleagues from West Midlands Police.

Detective Constable Robert Graham said: “Drugs cause misery in our communities and this sentencing underlines Police Scotland’s commitment to the Serious Organised Crime Taskforce and the country’s Serious Organised Crime Strategy.

“We are working hard to ensure Scotland is a hostile environment for those who want to engage in criminal activity involving illegal substances.

“Investigations like this rely on the public and anyone with information or concerns about drugs within their community should contact Police Scotland on 101 or make a call anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
