Brothers jailed after £1.3 million worth of cocaine was seized in the North-east

Two brothers have been jailed for more than a decade after £1.3 million of cocaine was seized by police in the North-east.

Garry and Harry Davidson have been sentenced to almost 12 years for their roles in the supply of cocaine in Aberdeen.

Today, 27-year-old Garry Davidson was sentenced to five years and 219 days at the High Court in Edinburgh for his involvement in the supply of the class-A drug.

He was arrested on June 23 following an operation by the Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism Unit which resulted in the recovery of cocaine in the Banchory-Devenick area with an estimated street value of £17,700.

His brother, 24-year-old Harry Davidson, was sentenced on July 4 at High Court in Glasgow to six years’ imprisonment after the OCCTU recovered high purity cocaine with a street value of £1,285,700.

That followed the seizure of cocaine from a vehicle on Oscar Road in Aberdeen on March 9.

Detective Inspector Robin Sim, from OCCTU in Aberdeen, said: “Garry and Harry Davidson were heavily involved in the supply of cocaine in Aberdeen and ran a well organised operation.

“A significant covert police operation was launched due to intelligence received about the Davidson brothers’ involvement in the supply of drugs. As a result of this police operation, a significant amount of illegal and harmful drugs have been removed from our community.

“The supply of illegal drugs is not welcome in our communities and we will continue to take action to target those who peddle drugs.

“Anyone with information about the supply of controlled drugs is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”
