Following the sentencing, Detective Constable Wellings, of Ellesmere Port Proactive CID, said:
“This is a fantastic result, not only are four drug dealers now behind bars, but we’ve also been able to remove a large quantity of crack cocaine from the streets of our town.
“During our enquiries it was clear that these men were all part of a well-established organised crime gang who were responsible for dealing large quantities of illegal drugs in the Ellesmere Port area.
“Thanks to our detailed investigation we were able to bring the men to justice, leaving them with no option but to plead guilty to all of the offences.
“While this gang are now behind bars, out fight against illegal drugs continues and as part of this we need support from local residents. We need the public to be our eyes and ears and to come forward with information regarding drug dealing in the areas they live in.
“If you have any information about illegal drug activity or any other criminal activity taking place, please report it to us on 101, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, and we will do the rest.”
