The arrests were part of an anti-drug operation by the Trident Central Gangs Unit and Haringey Borough officers. 

Crack cocaine, heroin and cannabis were some of the drugs found by officers over the course of the operation which was codenamed Fadden and targeted prolific offenders. 

'The North London Somalian Gang', 'Albanian Young Guns', 'The Wood Green Mob' and 'Ida Road Gang' were all implicated in the illegal supply of Class A or Class B drugs as part of the evidence gathering tactic of Operation Fadden.

31 gang members were arrested over four separate dates in late February and early March 2012 

All 31 defendants pleaded guilty at court hearings at Wood Green Crown Court between March and July 2012.

They have now been sentenced to more than 40 years in jail between them.
