Criminals operating in the West Midlands, and they were involved in bringing illegal drugs into the UK. They managed to smuggle drugs worth more than £135 million. This gang was smart and used a furniture removal company to hide their illegal activities.

The leader of the gang was a man named Jonathan Arnold from Sutton Coldfield. He lived a fancy life, enjoying luxury things and even filmed himself driving a cool car during trips to Dubai. But the truth was, he made all that money from selling drugs.

The gang had a sneaky way of getting the drugs into the country. They would hide them in trucks and vans that carried furniture. Some of these vehicles had secret compartments where the drugs were kept out of sight.

The police from different areas in the West Midlands worked together to stop the gang’s operations. Their first break came when they caught one of the gang members with a large amount of drugs during a search.

Later on, they had an even bigger success when Dutch police officers found a huge amount of cocaine hidden among bananas on a ship coming from Colombia. This drug shipment was worth around £118 million!

The gang had a courier named Connor Fletcher, who was caught with 60 kg of cocaine hidden in his truck. He drove from Calais to Dover, and the police managed to arrest him when he returned to the UK.

In the end, the gang members faced the consequences of their actions. Jonathan Arnold got 23 years and six months in prison, James Jenkins got 15 years, Connor Fletcher got 12 years, and Humayan Sadiq got 27 years.
