King's Lynn drugs raid: Nine men charged following operation in five police force areas
Police in Derbyshire have released more details of the operation which saw a drugs raid carried out in South Lynn earlier this week.
Two men from South Lynn, together with seven others from Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire, will appear in court next month accused of drug supply offences.
It was confirmed yesterday that charges had been brought following the search conducted at a property in Diamond Street on Tuesday, though no further details were released at that stage.
Derbyshire Police has now announced the Lynn men who have been charged are Neritan Buza and Mirand Koci, who are both 29 and of Wisbech Road, South Lynn.
They have been charged with conspiracy to supply a class B drug and are due to appear before Derby Crown Court on August 13.
Six other defendants are also due to appear at the court on that date charged with the same offence.
They are: Callum Clarke, 30, of Hilton Close, Pleasley, Nottinghamshire; Egli Dobra, 24, of Rydal Grove, Nottinghamshire; Olsian Hysi, 26, of Ridgeway, Warsop, Nottinghamshire; Drilon Losha, 23, of Hayworth Road, Sandiacre, Derbyshire; Egi Tafa, 23, and Melvan Koci, 28, both of Calderdale, Wollaton, Nottinghamshire.
A ninth man – Brett Simpson, 30, of Sycamore Road, Burton Upon Trent, Staffordshire – is due to appear before Derby Crown Court on August 18. He is also accused of conspiring to supply class B drugs.
All of the men have been remanded in custody until their court appearances.
Police say the charges follow the execution of 10 separate search warrants in recent days, which uncovered five separate cannabis growing operations.
As well as the South Lynn address, sites in Birmingham, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire were searched.
