Five jailed for drugs trafficking in Stirling
Five people have been jailed after the seizure of over £1.5 million worth of drugs as part of Operation Nomad in Scotland [16 August 2012].
The operation, launched last year by Central Scotland Police, aims to tackle drugs trafficking in the Stirling area.
Sentencing took place at the High Court in Glasgow with the five men all given between three and eight years in jail for their crimes.
A woman, aged 45, was also given 300 hours community service after she was found to have been involved in hiding drugs for the gang.
Months of surveillance led to the seizure, bringing a stop to the drug dealing operation.
Chief Inspector Sneddon said: "This operation came about as a result of information from the community.
"We need the continued support of the community to help us build up a case to be able make arrests and we do act on information received.
"The people involved in this case, and others involved in drugs, cause untold misery to our communities and this shows our determination in pursuing those involved in dealing in drugs."
