Six Oxfordshire men who were members of an organised crime gang have been sentenced to a total of 22 years in prison for drugs offences.

All six pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine and cannabis after they were targeted in police raids in March last year.

Det Supt David Poole, Head of Specialist Operations, who led the investigation, said: “The six defendants pleaded guilty due to the overwhelming evidence. I would like to thank all those involved for bringing this case to a successful conclusion.

“Convicting all involved in this organised crime group is a significant achievement. They saw themselves as untouchable by law enforcement.
