Mad Dog pals start drug ring; EXCLUSIVE.
TERROR boss Johnny "Mad Dog" Adair's henchmen are already running a drugs and crime ring in Scotland.
Intelligence files have revealed his feared UDA C Company outcasts have linked up with Scots gangsters and loyalist heavies.
The arrival of Adair's family and friends in Scotland has fuelled fears they are to expand their foothold in the country.
Mad Dog's gang, and his wife Gina and children, fled to Ayrshire last week after being driven out of their lower Shankill stronghold.
Senior police sources believe the terror mob will boost crime across the central belt and Ayrshire.
They revealed loyalist thugs already have a firm grip on underworld activities in Ayrshire and Lanarkshire.
Adair's thugs are suspected of being involved in drugs, counterfeit money, credit card fraud and money laundering.
It is believed Adair was a frequent visitor to Scotland when he was bidding for a pub in Ayrshire.
