12 members of an organised crime gang who conspired to bring cocaine and heroin into Lincolnshire have been jailed for a combined total of 142 years imprisonment following a year-long investigation by the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU).

Officers found that a combined total value of £4 million of heroin and cocaine had been supplied by the crime group, from Yorkshire to the East Midlands, in what was a highly organised and efficient running operation.

DI Paul McMahon, of EMSOU, said: “These individuals were responsible for the organised supply of vast quantities of Class A drugs from West Yorkshire into the East Midlands.

“High value organised drugs supply ‘businesses’ bring an increase in acquisitive crime & violence to the communities in this region.

“These convictions show that even in challenging financial times Lincolnshire Police & EMSOU will continue to protect the public by tackling complex serious crime head on.”
