Members of a criminal gang who supplied drugs in Birmingham and Worcester have been sentenced to a total of over 47 years.
Daniel White and William Dudley prosecuted eight men involved in the conspiracy to supply Heroin and Crack Cocaine. Two of the men, the key organisers of the gang, were convicted after a trial lasting several weeks at Worcester Crown Court. The other defendants pleaded guilty.
The prosecution case relied on cell site and numberplate recognition evidence to track members of the group travelling to Hull to buy the drugs before returning to the West Midlands where surveillance evidence showed the gang selling drugs to up to 50 customers a day. In order to avoid detection, the gang changed addresses regularly and used two drugs lines to supply their customers.
When sentencing the men His Honour Judge Juckes QC paid tribute to the investigation. The leader of the organisation, Mohamoud Ahmed, was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment. Majid Jamjamle, one of the key organisers, was sentenced to 11 years imprisonment. The other defendants received sentences ranging from 3-7 years.
