#Encrochat Ryan Ferguson was sentenced at the High Court in Glasgow for supplying cocaine

A Highland gangland boss who hid drugs valued at thousands of pounds in secret woodland “stash sites” has been jailed for five years and eight months.

Ryan Ferguson was sentenced at the High Court in Glasgow after admitting supplying cocaine, cannabis and benzocaine.

Ferguson, 30, of Inverness, pled guilty at a hearing last month to being involved in serious organised crime between June 2019 and September 2021.

The court heard how Ferguson arranged for the deliveries of controlled drugs and large sums of cash to the north of Scotland.

Crown Office prosecutors told how he then identified a number of rural spots to keep the drugs hidden.

And he ordered members of his gang to use the sites to bury the drugs before planning to sell them on the high street.

The drugs were later valued by police at more than £492,000.

But his illicit scheme unravelled when police intercepted mobile phone conversations on an encrypted EncroChat device during surveillance operations.

Those discussions, involving other gangland figures in the north east of England and Glasgow, revealed the scope and the planning of Ferguson’s operation.

Prosecutors told how he orchestrated the delivery of significant quantities of drugs into the Highlands.

In one exchange, Ferguson was heard arranging a £75,000 payment to a courier as part of a handover of drugs in a factory car park.

And on another occasion, he was heard discussing the price of cocaine with an intermediary.

The hearing was told of a number of seizures police made during their investigations.

In June 2020, a total of £142,098 of high purity cocaine was found hidden under moss in woods in the Highlands.

A further drugs haul worth £350,000 was discovered after two men linked to Ferguson were stopped in separate raids.

The court heard that Ferguson, who has previous convictions for drug-related offences, was released from prison in June 2019.

Within weeks, however, he had returned to a life of crime, despite having been served with a Serious Crime Prevention Order (SCPO) following his previous convictions.

Under the terms of that order, he was allowed only one mobile phone and sim.

During the police investigation, it was determined that Ferguson had used at least 29 mobiles.

He was arrested at Glasgow Airport in June last year after arriving back from a holiday in Thailand with his partner.

Laura Buchan, Procurator Fiscal for Specialist Casework, welcomed the sentence and said it sent out a strong deterrent against those who blight communities in Scotland through drugs trafficking.

She said: “This was a coordinated effort to bring significant quantities of illegal and harmful drugs to the north of Scotland. Ryan Ferguson is now serving a prison sentence as a result of an extensive police operation, with oversight from COPFS, to investigate a network of drug supply.

If you need to communicate top classified information, transfer secret data or store sensitive files , you need an Anti Espionage and Anti Interception ENCRYGMA.COM Cipher Phone .

The ENCRYGMA.COM Mobile Cipher Machine is an above “Government Level”, Quantum Safe Encryption, mathematically uncrackable, no matter how much computational power is applied.

The Above Video has been posted by hackers that tried to extract information from our iPhones, in a "physical" way, by taking apart the device and trying to retrieve the data , directly from the chip that integrates the DBV Hardware Encryption Engine.

“Untraceable, Near to UnHackable, ‘Perfect Secrecy’ Communications, more secure than a face to face meeting “ : Modus Operandi of Top secret ultra encrypted data transfer between two remote Offline Cipher Machines.

Imagine this “covert communications” scenario : Bob wants to send Alice an extremely confidential text message.

He is encrypting the message on his Air Gapped ( Offline) Mobile Encryption Machine . The encrypted message is transformed into a QR Code, then with an online connected device , Bob scan the QR code generated from his offline encryption machine .

This QR code containing the encrypted message is then posted by Bob’s online connected device, on an anonymous Instagram account that is then visited by Alice, who owns the same Offline Cipher Machine .

Alice then scan the QR code from the Instagram post and decipher it , totally offline, on her own encryption system that is powered by the same set of encryption algorithms of Bob’s system.

What just happened here is called “ Perfect Secrecy “.

✅ An OTP Ciphered information ( mathematically uncrackable encryption)  has been delivered to a remote receiver without  ever sending the receiver , directly, anything.

✅ Leaving no direct digital trace online of any type of communications between the two parties .

✅ All the encryption and decryption process happens on disconnected devices , therefore any online cyber attacks are near to impossible.

✅ Encryption Keys 🔐 used, are freshly created for each individual communication session , generated by the user, never stored on the device or ever exchanged with the receiving party.

✅ All data is permanently erased from the offline cipher machines.
