Aberdeen heroin and cocaine gang jailed for 16 years

Three men who admitted supplying heroin and cocaine into Aberdeen have been jailed for more than 16 years.

Ian Mighty, 35, was jailed for six years and nine months, and Stephen Anderson, 42, was jailed for five years and ten months.

James McCabe, 36, was jailed for three years and 10 months.

The High Court in Edinburgh heard Mighty wanted to open a restaurant but debts saw him turn to the drug business.

The court had earlier heard the syndicate was run from London but was involved bringing "substantial quantities" of cocaine and heroin into Aberdeen over a period of two years.
