Kenilworth man jailed for part in million pound drug gang


A Kenilworth man has been jailed for almost five years for his part in an organised gang supplying millions of pounds worth of class A drugs.

Jack Bromell, of Richards Close, was jailed for four years and nine months after pleading guilty to charges of conspiring to supply cocaine.

Bromell (pictured right), 20, was one of ten men from across Coventry and Warwickshire sentenced for a total of 96 years for the drugs and money laundering offences at Birmingham Crown Court on Wednesday. Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police began the investigation, Operation Toulouse in July 2012.

As a result, 18.25 kilos of amphetamine, 12.28 kilos of cocaine, five kilos of ketamine, 412 diazepam tablets and 342 grams of cannabis resin were seized - with a combined street value of over £5.25 million.

Police also claimed a firearm and £100,000 in cash and found the men were supplying drugs both regionally and across the country.

The men were all arrested in July last year.

Detective Chief Inspector Ally Wright spoke after the sentencing to say he was “pleased” with the result.

“There is no doubt that this group was the primary source of illegal drugs supply within north Warwickshire and Coventry,” he said.

In 2012 and 2013, 10 other members of the group were sentenced to a total of 42 years in prison for drugs offences.
