A county lines drugs gang that flooded Wiltshire with crack cocaine and heroin has been jailed for more than 50 years.
The gang, which was comprised of six members, shipped the Class A drugs from London to dealers in Swindon and Marlborough.
The operation was headed up by gang leader Linford Goode, who ran the operation while on licence from prison.
When police raided Goode’s house, he was found in possession of a £21,000 Rolex watch and £20,000 in cash.
Sara Kokot, Goode’s accomplice, helped ship the drugs out of the capital by driving them down to Wiltshire in luxury cars.
Between them, Goode and Kokot made more than twenty trips to Swindon in order to keep an eye on the business they ran with Tiffany Smart, 27, Dean Black, 50, Scott Cadder, 33, and Shaun Smith, 30.
Smart, who is from Mistletoe Court in south Swindon, managed the local dealers and housed Goode and Kokot each time they visited.
Cadder, Black and Smith, meanwhile, operated as the local dealers - supplying the drugs to addicts in Swindon and Marlborough.
What the gang were sentenced to:
- Goode of Mary Place, Notting Hill, was jailed for 19 years.
- Kokot of Shepherd's Bush, was jailed for eight and a half years.
- Cadder of Fairfax Close, East Swindon was jailed for seven and a half years.
- Smith of Bourne way, Burbage, was jailed for six years.
- Smart of Mistletoe Court, South Swindon was jailed for eight years.
- Black of Orchard Close, Marlborough, was jailed for seven years and eight months.
The total sentence for all six defendants was one of 56 years and 8 months.
