They sentenced a British drug gang after the appearance of one of its members on a television ‘show’

Members of a British drug gang received a long prison sentence on Thursday after police arrested one of its members while filming for a television program a few years ago, reports Daily Mail.

Joanne Cooke, 36, was arrested in North Yorkshire (UK) in April 2016 when she was carrying £ 70,000 (about $ 96,000) worth of cocaine and cannabis in the trunk of her car. His arrest occurred as part of the filming of the ‘Police Interceptors’ program for Channel 5 and led to the collapse of a drug supply chain.

Also, after Cooke’s arrest, the police were able to find other members of the criminal group. As a result, this day, a court sentenced 14 members of the gang to 86 years in prison in total.

Among others, the leaders of the group, Dennis Dawrant Jnr and Dennis Dawrant Snr, will also be jailed. Cooke was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison.

After the trial, the Chief Inspector of the Organized Crime, Economic and Cybercrime Unit of the Cleveland Police, Sarah Robinson, said that the officers carried out “a complex and lengthy investigation.” “I am very proud of the professionalism and dedication of the team that has worked tirelessly to bring to justice those responsible for this large-scale drug supply,” she said.
