A Bristol gang who led a £4.5 million cocaine conspiracy and supplied more than 130 kilos of cocaine across the South West has been jailed for 56 years.

The four men were arrested in 2020 under Operation Venetic.  This was the UK operation that followed the cracking of Encrochat used by organised crime groups.  Teams from the South West Regional Organised Crime Unit (SWROCU) spent months reviewing thousands of messages to identify the roles and activities of the criminal network.
