Three men who ran an organised crime ring which flooded York with cocaine, ecstacy and Class B drugs have been jailed for a total of 32 years.
The ringleader, Steven Small, was sentenced to 12 years for conspiracy to supply drugs after the court heard how his gang made hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Daniel Fisher will spend 10 years behind bars along with co-conspirator Ben Tootill from Harrogate.
Despite claiming they were penniless, the pair were captured on covert police video with a top of the range BMW, which they used to traffic the drugs around York.
The detective who led the case says their lavish lifestyles were their undoing.
Fourteen members of a wide ranging drugs ring, which flooded North Yorkshire with cocaine, ecstacy and other Class B drugs are facing jail tonight.

The juries in both cases heard how the gang supplied drugs to street level dealers for several years.
