When police raided the villa of Walter Callinan, a close associate of Philip Baron, they found a 200-page ledger detailing transactions for a total of 17 tonnes of powerful 'skunk' cannabis sent to Britain over a 17 month period.
The shipments accounted for 6% of all cannabis sent into the UK at the time.
Callinan was jailed for 11 years 2011. Shortly after his arrest, Callinan phoned his son in a recorded phone call saying the game was essentially up. SOCA investigators listened as he told his son Ben:
There is documentation, spreadsheets of monies collected off motorways... 100 grand, 60 grand, 80 grand. We're f*** mate, they've got that much documentation.
F***ing hell, the Pope wouldn't get out of this.
