SIX members of a Glasgow gang caught with £600,000 of cocaine, heroin and Etizolam who planned to flood Inverness with drugs were today ailed for a total of 25 years.

A seventh member's sentence was deferred for further reports

Judge Lord Boyd said: “This was a sophisticated and organised criminal conspiracy and you all played a part.”
Ringleaders Kieran Adams, 28, from Clydebank and Stephen Kelly, 31, from Glasgow, were each sentenced to seven years and six months.

Donald Dunbar, 61, from Glasgow, Kenneth MacKenzie, 25, from Glasgow, and Sean Gordon, 28, from Drumchapel, Glasgow, were each jailed for three years each, and Karen Reynolds, 51, from Glasgow, was jailed for a year.

Danielle Finlay, 30, from Hamilton, had a sentence on her deferred until December and she was granted bail.

They all admitted being involved in the supply of drugs between November 2018 and March this year.

These charges were aggravated by a connection with serious organised crime.

Lord Boyd told Adams and Kelly: “You are the only ones who do not have a dependency on drugs. You directed others and your motivation was wholly financial gain.

The High Court in Glasgow heard that the other accused had drug problems and became involved to pay off drugs debts.

Defence counsel Mark Moir, representing Finlay said: “She had a significant drug addiction problem and is taking steps to address that. Her involvement in this was acting as a courier on a single day. She had accrued a significant drug debt and had agreed to act as a courier to help pay that off.”

Lord Boyd is considering a non-custodial sentence for Finlay and has called for further reports on her progress.
