Three Sheffield men are in prison for their part in a drug dealing network which landed gang members behind bars for a total of 155 years.

The gang conspired to bring cocaine and heroin into Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire from West Yorkshire and were snared after a year-long police investigation.

Another five pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supplying cocaine, with two of the men also admitting conspiracy to supply crack cocaine.

Lincolnshire Police said between June 2016 and March 2017, heroin was found to have been supplied on a ‘commercial scale’ into Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

This supply network was arranged and controlled by Lincolnshire based organised crime group boss, Darren Peters, who arranged for heroin to be collected from suppliers and distributed to dealers across the region.

A Sheffield based gang was involved in the supply chain, with Kasim Hussain, a serving prisoner at HMP Doncaster, running the South Yorkshire element of the operation.

He used Sheffield-based gang members Nasarat Mohammed, of Swarcliffe Road, Darnall and Mohammed Abdul Ali, of Collister Drive, Darnall, to distribute the heroin.

Hussein was jailed for six years and nine months; Mohammed was jailed for seven-and-a half years and Ali got four years and three months.

Neil Anthony Greenfield, head of a Lincolnshire organised crime group, organised and ran the cocaine supplying arm of the operation.

DI Paul McMahon, of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit, said: “These individuals were responsible for the organised supply of vast quantities of Class A drugs from West Yorkshire into the East Midlands. 
“High value organised drugs supply ‘businesses’ bring an increase in acquisitive crime and violence to the communities in this region.
“These convictions show that even in challenging financial times Lincolnshire Police and EMSOU will continue to protect the public by tackling complex serious crime head on.”
