Organised crime gang jailed for drugs offences in Grimsby

They sent drugs runners into the town

5 members of an organised crime gang who controlled drug runners in Grimsby have been jailed for a total of over 36 years.

The group were all from the Liverpool and Cheshire areas and transported  heroin and crack cocaine with a street value of well over a million pounds into the town over an 18 month period.

They recruited local people and some from outside the area to sell the drugs.   

Their activities came to light following a police investigation into a burglary in Merseyside where a mobile phone was seized with messages indicating a major operation to supply drugs.
