Michael Duck QC prosecutes Operation Active drugs conspiracy (1)

Tue, 02 Jul 2013

Police have smashed a drugs cartel in Shropshire after a major undercover enquiry codenamed Operation Active. 
 
The web of dealers believed they were “untouchable”, but their daily activity came to the attention of police in summer 2011. 
 
Scott Highfield, 40, was the last of 28 people to be sentenced. He admitted conspiracy to supply crack cocaine. 
 
Michael Duck QC, prosecuting, said covert police inquiries – including video and audio equipment at the Phoenix Car Centre car centre in Shrewsbury – showed 118 phone and text contacts between Highfield and another co-conspirator, Gordon Smith.
