detective Inspector Alan Martin, who led the investigation said: “We welcome today’s sentencing to five men to a total of 29 years.

Neil McDonald was sentenced to seven years and nine months
Darius Saidi-Bidokhti was sentenced to six years and six months
Luke Francis was sentenced to five years
Tomas Morozovas was sentenced to four years
Thomas McCollum was sentenced to five years and nine months

“Four others were given suspended sentences, community orders and unpaid work.

“All pleaded guilty for their roles in a drugs operation, targeting those suspected of supplying Class A and B drugs to North Wales.

“The sentencing of these men is a result of a long-running and complex investigation in relation to suspected cocaine and cannabis supply, following their arrest and charge in August 2018 and the recovery of cannabis with a street value of £200,000 and significant amount of Class A drugs.

“We’ll continue, with the support of police forces across our region, to target those suspected of being involved in the supply and distribution of drugs and put them before the courts and we’d like to thank North Wales Police for their co-operation with this investigation.

“If you have any information about drugs supply in your area, please DM @MerPolcc, call 101 or contact @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111.”
