Client found Not Guilty by Jury at Bristol Crown Court of a Conspiracy to Import Cocaine

Operation Anthill is the culmination of a coordinated investigation into serious organised crime led by Zephyr, the regional crime group that was established in 2010 to disrupt, dismantle and destroy serious and organised crime across the South West of England. This particular operation was coordinated with NCA (National Crime Agency formerly known as SOCA) and other agencies involving over 100 officers in dawn raids across the country.

The case involves conspiracy to import class A drugs, conspiracy to supply class A and class B drugs, money laundering and firearms offences in the South West of England and MPR Solicitors have been retained to defend.

The Firm’s Serious and Complex Crime Team will be defending the case headed by the Senior Partner who is also a practising defence barrister.
