Peterborough Drugs Gang Jailed
A group of Peterborough drug dealers have been sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court, for trying to supply Class A drugs to inmates at HMP Peterborough.
Sinead Crowley (above), 35, of Padholme Road Davin Glasson, 35, of Hampton Hargate; Emma Neal, 38, of Hampton Hargate; and Shaed Younis, 43, of Padholme Road, all pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply Class A drugs into HMP Peterborough.
Additionally Crowley and Younis (below) pleaded guilty to conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Crowley was sentenced to two years and nine months; Glasson was sentenced to three years and Younis was sentenced to seven years.
Neal received a two year suspended sentence.
A third man, Mohammed Akhtar, 26, of Huntley Grove was sentenced to four years having pleaded guilty to conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and possession of an offensive weapon.
The court heard that on April 22 of this year, acting on intelligence gathered, police searched a vehicle in which a total of 6.81 grams of heroin was found to be contained within a yellow plastic Kinder Egg. A quantity of cash was also removed from the car.
Detective Constable Kevin Poole said: "These sentences should act as a clear warning to those involved in the supply, or possession of drugs, and to those who attempt to pervert the course of justice by aiding criminals.
"The sentence handed to Younis, a repeat offender, reflects the fact that he has refused to change his ways."
Detective Constable Peter Hume said:
"I would like to thank colleagues at HMP Peterborough for their assistance in this case and in bringing this group to justice.
We will continue to work with partner agencies to ensure that these types of offences are pursued to the full extent of the law."
