Congleton drug dealers jailed for more than 35 years

A county lines drug dealing gang in Congleton have been jailed for more than 35 years.

The eight people were all sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court for their part in a conspiracy to supply Class A drugs in the town.

Most of the dealers were not from the town and were bringing in drugs from Liverpool to be sold on the streets of Congleton, as part of a criminal gang called “John & Redge”.

The group would frequently swap vehicles, addresses, phones and their roles in the conspiracy to try and keep the police guessing.

Detective Inspector Adam Ross said: “The supply of drugs into Congleton has been severely disrupted by the robust sentences handed down.

“The group acted more like a business with defined roles and steps taken to conceal their activities and manage risk to their enterprise.

“But through the hard work of officers, supported by the community, we have been able to bring these people to justice.”
