100 years jail for Blackpool drugs gang

Six people have been sentenced to a total of more than 25 years in prison for offences including drugs supply and money laundering.

Operation Jennet is an investigation by Lancashire Constabulary’s Serious Crime Team into the large scale supply of Class A drugs (Cocaine), class B drugs (cannabis) and money laundering in the Fylde coast and throughout the United Kingdom.

During the course of the operation, approximately six kilograms of cocaine, a quarter of a kilo of amphetamine and more than £120,000 in cash was seized.

The drugs recovered were worth around £700,000, with the gang believed to be responsible for bringing drugs into Blackpool worth millions of pounds between May 2016 to July 2017.

In November, 15 people, including the ringleaders, Anthony Gill from Manchester and Bradley Gill from Blackpool, were sentenced to more than 100 years in prison.

Yesterday (Thursday, March 14) six people, pictured, who helped to supply the drugs throughout the resort, were jailed at Preston Crown Court.
