Taxi driver identified as Aberdeen drugs runner
Cabbie allegedly hid cash behind £2.2 million property empire
A TAXI driver was identified by organised crime cops as an Aberdeen drugs runner hiding his cash behind a £2.2 million property empire.
The unnamed taxi driver was at the centre of an investigation by Scotland’s leading underworld crime agency.
The taxi driver allegedly masterminded a plan to install a network of traffickers in his Aberdeen rental homes, from where they would co-ordinate plans to bring Class A drugs to the city.
Chief Constable Gordon Meldrum, Director General of the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, said: “It is still the case that the vast majority of the gangs are based in the Central Belt but we work hand in glove with Grampian Police to minimise the activities of known organised crime groups in the North-east.”
