Gang Jailed for Drug Offences

  • Posted

It was reported over the weekend, that a gang of seven, who were involved in the conspiracy to supply Class A drugs throughout the Harrogate area, have been sentenced to jail for a combined total of nearly 30 years.

The investigation into the gang, who all pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply heroin and crack cocaine in Harrogate, began in March 2012 after a police officer spotted an individual purchasing drugs.

As a result of the investigation into the “gang” and their subsequent arrests, they have each been handed various sentences ranging from a 16 month custodial sentence; through to eight years imprisonment for the individual deemed to be the ring-leader.

The reports have also revealed that a further two individuals, associated with the gang, received suspended sentences and community service orders.
