DRUGS GANG TRIO ESCAPES JAIL TERM

By timesecholife on in Latest News

GANG members from Cheadle, Blythe Bridge and Forsbrook have been sentenced alongside six others for conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

The trio were linked to a drugs ring in Staffordshire and the Wirral after they were found with a cereal tin of cocaine in their pick-up truck.
Nine of the gang pleaded guilty to the charges, while one was found guilty after a six-day trial.
All but one were sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court on Monday and five of the gang have been jailed for a total of 25 years.
Thomas Cotterill, aged 22, of Victory Crescent, Cheadle, received a 16-month suspended sentence, Joseph Plimmer, aged 20, of Woodlands Lane, Blythe Bridge, received a 21-month suspended sentence and Lee Edwards, aged 21, of Dilhorne Road, Forsbrook, received a two-year suspended sentence.
All three were ordered to undertake 250 hours of unpaid work and must pay £400 costs.
The court heard the men were linked to a cocaine gang after a white Nissan Navara pick-up was stopped on the M6 between junctions 19 and 18 on August 25, 2015.
