A drugs gang who flooded Derby with cocaine have been jailed for more than 20 years.
Mickleover-based dealer Daniel Gibbons sourced the high-purity cocaine from Nottingham supplier Daniel Yeboah.
Gibbons would send a courier to Nottingham to meet Yeboah’s right-hand man, Kevin Machin, and would return with cocaine, as well as heroin, to supply a web of street dealers in Derby.
Following investigations by officers from Derbyshire police, a number of arrests were made in both Derby and Nottingham during coordinated raids in June 2020.
Appearing at Derby Crown Court on 29 June, the four were jailed for a combined total of more than 20 years in prison:
Yeboah, 38, of Violet Road, Carlton, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply heroin and cocaine – jailed for nine years.
