Oluchi Ochereobia, 22, of Mandeville Street, Calvyn Senna Green, 25, of Keyworth Close and Jaivon Prince, 20, of Daubney Road were caught out after the Met discovered a network operating out of London to supply drugs in Norwich.

Ochereobia was running the network with his brother Kenechi, who was based in Cardiff.

Green was arrested in September last year at Ipswich station, on a London-bound train from Norwich. He was found with £2,500 cash, as well as mobile phones that had been used to communicate with Kenechi Ochereobia and those he was supplying the drugs to.
