Notorious Gangs who were part of a group involved in illegal drugs have been given prison sentences totaling nearly 100 years for providing more than 100kg of very dangerous drugs in the West Midlands.

According to the police, these 10 men were part of an organized crime group based in West Bromwich. They mainly supplied cocaine and heroin during 2020, even amidst the Covid pandemic, they confessed to have made more than £1.5 million during that time.

To avoid detection, one of the gang members used a van with a ‘Thank You NHS’ logo to transport the drugs. The West Midlands Police stated that the gang used encrypted devices to openly discuss the management and delivery of large quantities of Class A drugs across the UK.

The gang was led by Kamaljit Chahal from Sutton Coldfield and his nephew Bhipon Chahal from Great Barr. They employed a network of couriers and facilitators, including Miguel Lewin Miller and Matthias Tulloch, and communicated using encrypted devices. Tulloch used the NHS-branded van to carry out criminal activities during the Covid pandemic.

The investigation revealed that both Kamaljit Chahal and Wesley applied for and received government-backed ‘Covid loans,’ which they shockingly reinvested into the drug trade.

All gang members appeared in Leicester Crown Court and pleaded guilty to drugs offenses, including conspiracy to supply Class A drugs. They received the following sentences:

  • Kamaljit Singh Chahal, 52 years old, was sentenced to 18 years in prison.
  • Bhipon Chahal, 25 years old, was sentenced to 14 years in prison.
  • Matthias Tulloch, 43 years old, was sentenced to 12 years in prison.
  • Sandeep Johal, 32 years old, was sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Chief Inspector Peter Cooke from the West Midlands Regional Organized Crime Unit described this as a significant operation involving Class A drugs. He emphasized the ongoing efforts to dismantle drug networks in the West Midlands through Operation Target, which focuses on high-level organized crime in the region. The lengthy prison sentences handed down to these gang members serve as a clear warning to others involved in the supply of Class A drugs.

The police spokesperson added that Operation Target is now being implemented to combat various serious offenses, such as drug dealing, burglary, cybercrime, and fraud. Officers are utilizing local intelligence, conducting searches and seizures, and targeting suspects.
