A twelfth man has been jailed for his role in a plot to supply cannabis on a huge scale.
During a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday 19 November 2021, Drilon Dishi was sentenced to five years and 11 months’ imprisonment having previously pled guilty to conspiring to supply cannabis.
He played an important role in a criminal operation which ran cultivations in Ashford, Canvey Island and Hertfordshire between August 2019 and August 2020. It is estimated to have been worth more than £1 million.
More than 485 plants were also seized during a complex investigation carried out by the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate. A further half kilo of the harvested drug was also seized, as well as cash in excess of £61,000.
Dishi’s sentence means the offenders will serve close to 43 years in prison between them.
