Two drug traffickers have been jailed after they were caught with a haul of cocaine worth nearly £1m.
Robert Lennie, 32, and James Tinney, 52, were both in a flat in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, when police arrived and found the Class A drugs along with mixing agents and equipment linked to the drugs trade.
Nine-and-a-half kilos of cocaine was recovered from the property at Landemer Drive following the police raid on February 11, 2019.
The haul was estimated to be worth up to £957,880 on the streets.
Jailing them for six years each, a judge told the pair at the High Court in Edinburgh: “Your offending in this case has real victims, namely other people and their families.”
Lord Arthurson said the offending by its “corrosive nature” inflicted “terrible damage” on communities.
