Gang torture in woods
Mark Richardson, 30, was jailed for eight years and nine months for having a Glock handgun. They were responsible for bringing fear and misery to communities across Scotland and we welcome the fact that they have been brought to justice and will no longer to able to continue their criminal activities. The organised group also worked from a network of rented premises, often industrial units in out-of-the-way locations, or from unassuming lock-ups in Glasgow.
As the attackers left, members of the public came to the stricken man's aid. A grenade was also found in a hidden compartment (Image: Crown Office). The gang used a fleet of cars, often stolen and often high-powered to hide their weapons and illegal activities.
