An investigation led by Cleveland Police Organised Crime Unit has led to four men receiving a total of more than sixty years in prison after being convicted in relation to conspiracy to supply cocaine, cannabis and firearms.
The four men were sentenced yesterday, Tuesday 30th May, at Teesside Crown Court.
Lee Moore, Charles Dodkins and Daniel Snowdon were all sentenced to more than 14 years in prison and William Brown was sentenced to 21 years and four months in custody.
Inspector Gez Wraith said: “Operation Castle was an investigation into the criminal use of firearms and the supply of controlled drugs that resulted in the recovery of viable firearms and ammunition, Class A drugs and cash.
“We welcome the sentences that have been passed, showing that organised criminality will not be tolerated. We hope that this reassures the public that Cleveland Police will pursue those that are causing the most harm within our communities and we will continue to tackle organised criminality.
“I would like to thank the investigation team, our internal and external partner agencies and members of the public who have assisted throughout the investigation and judicial process, resulting in yesterday’s outcome.”
