Detectives who helped put a drug dealer behind bars after he organised a drive-by shooting have welcomed his 11-year sentence.
Declan Madigan, aged 28, of Winthorpe Road, Newark, organised the attack on a house in Aspley - which turned out to be empty - after an argument over drugs.
When police tracked him down, they found cocaine at his house.
Det Insp Lee Young said:
A dealer who organised a drive-by shooting as part of an argument over drugs has been jailed for 11 years.
Declan Madigan, aged 28, from Nottinghamshire, pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine with intent to supply, possession of a shotgun with intent to endanger life, and to using another person to hide the firearm.
Madigan, of Winthorpe Road, Newark, was jailed at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday.
The court heard he organised for shots to be fired at a house in Watford Road, Apsley, after an argument around Madigan's drug dealing.
They were designed to intimidate the resident - who was not in at the time - as Madigan felt they had wronged him.
The shooter fled on a motor scooter, and Madigan persuaded a friend to look after the shotgun. He was tracked down by DNA evidence.
