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:
This was a very serious crime which served to terrify the victim. Although the house was empty Madigan could not have known that.
His actions were reckless and spared no thought for any bystanders who may have been in the location around this time.
At no point is there any justification for arming yourself with a gun and the criminal justice system comes down hard on anyone who does.
Despite the web of lies Madigan weaved following the incident there was no doubt of his involvement in this shooting nor his involvement in drug dealing.
I am pleased this has resulted in him now serving a considerable amount of time behind bars.
