Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Five people have been charged following a morning of warrants to dismantle a gang allegedly involved in a county lines drug supply between Nottingham and Derby.

Officers executed six warrants yesterday (Tuesday 27 July) and arrested ten people on suspicion of conspiracy to supply drugs between March 20 and yesterday’s date.
Half of those arrested have now been charged with allegedly committing this offence.

They are:
Mandy Hughes (39), of St David's Close, Derby; Bright Norman (24) of Hazel Hill Crescent, Nottingham; Andrew Everisto (23), of Charlbury Road, Nottingham; Rickey Hollis-Smith (29) of Sneinton Road, Nottingham and Cherise Fuller (27) of Burgass Road, Nottingham.

They have been remanded into custody and will appear before Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court today.

A 22-year-old Reading man remains in custody being questioned by detectives while the other four arrested Nottingham people – two women aged 23 and 26, and two men aged 23 and 40 – have been released on bail.

County lines is a term used to describe gangs and criminal networks involved in the supply of drugs in an area separate to where the ringleaders come from.
