Five members of a drugs gang who ran sophisticated cocaine factories at their homes have been jailed for a combined total of almost 25 years, prosecutors said.
Kristopher Murray, 22, James Fox, 37, Michael Fernandez, 47, Joseph Shields, 29, and Scott Mather, 42, were imprisoned after a police operation netted cocaine with a street value of more than £1.7 million.
The class A substance and other drugs paraphernalia were recovered from each of their homes in Glasgow and North Lanarkshire.
Detective Inspector Owen McDonach, of Strathclyde Police's major crime investigation unit, said: "This has been a long, detailed and complex investigation with several dedicated officers working on the inquiry.
"Today's verdict sends a strong message to those intent on causing misery by supplying and peddling drugs that they will not get away with it.
"We will do everything within our power to disrupt and dismantle drug dealers and serious organised criminals who make money from their criminal activities and think nothing of the communities they harm."
The total street value of the cocaine recovered was £1,762,296. All five admitted their involvement in the supply of cocaine at an earlier court hearing.
At the High Court in Edinburgh, the men were sentenced to a total of 24 years and five months behind bars, prosecutors later revealed.
Murray was jailed for seven years, Mather got six years and Fox was sentenced to five years in prison. Fernandez was given four years and two months behind bars, while Shields got two years, three months.
Lindsey Miller, head of the Crown Office serious and organised crime division, said: "We remain absolutely committed to detecting and disrupting organised crime across the country and I hope others who may be involved in the drugs trade take heed of this case - it is only a matter of time until you are tracked down and brought to justice."
