Superintendent Graham McLaughlin said: “This was a long and complex investigation which has led to the conviction of 15 men. “The jury heard how Neil Ogden lived a lavish lifestyle built on money he gained from his criminal behaviour. He took advantage of others who were dependent on drugs and used them to his advantage.

These vehicles, the cash and other property thought to belong to Neil Ogden will now be considered at a further court hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act.”
