Seventeen gang members have been jailed for 117 years after undercover police made Britain's biggest land based cocaine siezure in a dramatic swoop on the M6.

Helicopter footage shows the moment drug kingpin Jamie Simpson, 31, was arrested on the motorway near Knutsford, Cheshire, after police vehicles surrounded his Ford Transit.

Officers found 186 kilos of high purity cocaine worth an estimated £20million, hidden under the floor of the van, as well as in the passenger seat and stuffed inside boxes.

The raid was part of a covert police investigation called Operation Dreadnought into Warrington based organised crime groups lead by Simpson and Jamie Oldroyd.

Cheshire Police said the 'gangster lifestyles' led by the two ringleaders and gang members led to their arrests, as they flaunted their wealth.

One video (pictured) filmed on a phone showed Oldroyd and another gang member counting out an estimated £150,000 in cash on a coffee table where Rolex watches were seen.

cool cheesy cheesy

Europe Sha. Despite the fact that the offense is so grievous the punishment is still not too severe if you'd ask me.

Ask Malaysians, Thai, or an Arab man.


Imagine Joel Reading is 21 dem sentence am go 5years 7months. By 26 e don come back to dey ball ⚽. Probably become a Capon.

His life will still be better than an average Nigerian youth.

What's with the intense itch to flaunt wealth by poor people who turned rich suddenly. Why can't u just lie low,invest in legit businesses and live within ur income for 5 years before flaunting...or flaunt abroad(Dubai businesses,resorts and the likes)... Why the overpowering urge to show 'that u have arrived'

Naija yahoo boys are good victims of this SWIFIS (Sudden Wealth Itchy Finger Syndrome) or FLATUGECAS (Flaunt till u Get Caught Syndrome)

Naturally flaunting is abomination.
What you flaunt is creativity such as genius invention talents exceptional feat and accomplishments but definitely not money influenced lifestyle.
