A drugs gang from Nottinghamshire have been jailed for a total of 18 years for selling cocaine, ecstasy, cannabis and steroids.

James Stacey, of Forest Road, Mansfield, was the ringleader of group until a police investigation led to searches of homes across the county in August 2013.

When officers arrived at his work, he was seen trying to get rid of white powder, which turned out to be cocaine and MDMA.

He ran a network of lower-level dealers, and most of them had run up debts to Stacey so were forced to deal to pay him back.

Police Say The Gang Was Run Through 'Fear'

Detective Sergeant Simon Pearson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “James Stacey controlled this conspiracy through fear, lending money to associates and then enforcing the debt, which sometimes required those individuals to sell drugs for him, enabling him to enjoy a lifestyle which was well beyond the legitimate income he earned as a mechanic.

“He also exploited his employer’s trust in him by using his place of work to exchange quantities of drugs with his network of dealers. He ran a sophisticated business that required a lot of investigation’.

“His use of intimidation does not excuse the actions of his co-conspirators, however, and the sentences given today emphasise the seriousness of conspiring to sell illegal and addictive drugs in our communities.

“We will continue to identify and disrupt the activity of those individuals and groups who persist in selling drugs, and work with the Crown Prosecution Service to ensure they are brought before the courts.”
