Meet Norfolk's most wanted for county lines drug dealing

Police are today issuing the images of ten people most wanted in connection with county lines drug dealing in Norfolk.

The move follows two weeks of action in which officers arrested 68 people in the Norwich area on suspicion of offences related to the supply of Class A drugs.

The operation, led by Norfolk Constabulary’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit (SOCU), ran from Monday 16 April until Friday 27 April and was part of Operation Gravity.

Operation Gravity was launched in December 2016 in response to an increase in serious violent crime linked to county line drug dealing in Norfolk.

Since then more the 500 people have been arrested and officers have been working with partner agencies to identify those at risk from becoming involved in drug related crime, as well as signposting the most vulnerable members of our community to get the support services they need.

Over the past two weeks officers from the SOCU have been working with frontline officers from across the Norwich district, the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit, the Eastern Region Specialist Operations Unit, the National Crime Agency and the Metropolitan Police.

A total of 24 warrants were executed at addresses across the city and 68 people were arrested. Large quantities of Class A drugs were seized, along with cash, knives and mobile phones.

Now officers are appealing to the public to help trace ten people who remain outstanding and are wanted in connection with the supply of Class A drugs in the county.

They are:

  • Sean Walpole, aged 42, from Norwich - ARRESTED
  • Jah Mal Ohene-Darko, aged 23, from the London area but is known to frequent Norwich
  • Andrew Wirt, aged 31, from Norwich
  • Conner Durrant, aged 21, from the Lowestoft area but frequents in Norwich
  • Nathaniel Douglas, aged 29, from the London area but is known to frequent Norwich
  • Sue-Lee Mackey, aged 32, from Norwich
  • Muhammed Ashen, aged 29, from London but is known to frequent the Norwich area
  • Shane Dagless, aged 30, from Norwich
  • Ben Matthews, aged 43, from Norwich
  • Rhyann Kelly, aged 18, from Liverpool but is known to frequent Norwich

Assistant Chief Constable Paul Sanford said: “The two week enforcement action by our officers in the Serious and Organised Crime Unit was the culmination of seven months of intelligence gathering. This enforcement activity has clearly been a success with 68 people arrested, disrupting those organised crime groups who continue to think they can operate in the county.

“When we launched Operation Gravity in December 2016 we made it clear that Norfolk was not open for business for illegal drug activity and the message remains the same. However, we cannot deal with the issue with enforcement alone and local communities also have a role to play in helping keep their neighbourhood safe and free from the kind of anti-social behaviour linked to Class A drug dealing.

“We have now released the images of ten people we still want to speak to in connection with the supply of Class A drugs in Norfolk and I would urge any members of the public who may recognise them, or know of their whereabouts, to contact police.

“We have been overwhelmed by the public support of Operation Gravity so far – and whilst it has led to more reports of illegal drug activity and knife crime in the county – it has enabled to take action where it is needed. “

If you have any information on the whereabouts of any of the individuals pictured, please do not approach them but contact Norfolk Constabulary on 101 immediately quoting CAD 265 of Wednesday 2 May 2018.
