Members of Cornwall's biggest drug gang have been jailed for more than 100-years at Truro Crown Court on Friday 21st June.
Police seized more than eight hundred thousand pounds worth of cocaine, anphetamine and cannabis during the 3 year operation.
20 people were arrested in total - 18 of those have previously pleaded guilty and the other two were found guilty in court trials.
Two women were among those sentenced.
The gangs were working separately within Newquay and Falmouth and travelling as far north as Greater Manchester to deal.
The first drug seizure happened on the south bound carriageway of the M5 in Devon in October 2010 when 4kg of cocaine with a street value of £180,000 was found in a van.
Several seizures were made over the following 9 months with sentences taking place all this week.
The full breakdown of sentencing is as follows:
David Dale, the Senior Investigating Officer of the case, said: "We've reduced the supply of drugs not only across Cornwall but obviously from the North into Cornwall itself.
"We've taken the fight back up to the North and arrested people there so it's going to be a lot more difficult for local suppliers in Cornwall to get supply in the future."
