He was sentenced in Edinburgh High Court today.

The cocaine was found inside a transit van parked outside DM Kitchens – owned by Mرller.

Officers pursued Hardy and Smith as part of an intelligence-led investigation.

On the same day, Davidson delivered an HGV full of waffles from England to the industrial estate.

Officers saw the men working for about an hour before moving the goods from the HGV to the van.

They could hear the sounds of drilling, sawing and banging from cars.

When police went to search the vehicles, they found 30kg of cocaine hidden inside the van.

HGV was also searched and found to have been modified to hide packages.

The cocaine packages found in the van were the right size and shape to fit HGV Hyde.

Stephen McGowan, Deputy Crown Agent for Ceres Casework, said: “Intelligence obtained in this investigation has prevented a significant amount of cocaine from reaching the streets of Scotland.

“Drugs are devastating to communities across Scotland and we will continue to be a key part of the Serious Organized Crime Task Force to protect those communities.”

Following the sentencing in Edinburgh High Court today, Detective Superintendent Craig Wilson said: “There is no doubt that this cocaine seizure disrupted the drug supply.

“This cocaine was designed for the streets of Scotland, causing a lot of suffering and damage in our communities.

“The men involved thought that their methods of hiding drugs would prevent them from being detected. However, their arrest proves that this is not the case.

“I want to reassure the public that we will continue to target anyone involved in this type of activity, disrupting and eradicating their drug root networks whenever and wherever possible.”
