A violent organised crime gang who spread fear and misery in Dawlish and Teignmouth have been jailed for a combined total of 105 years.
Police say the group – known by locals as ‘The Geordies’ - exerted significant influence and control within Dawlish and Teignmouth and used violence and coercive tactics to maintain a criminal operation valued at £1million.
More scum off the streets. (for a while anyway)
James Brooks, 41, of Dawlish, was a member of a gang who got "large sums of money" from cocaine and cannabis.
Brooks, of Park Road, received the longest sentence of the 13 men, being handed 12 years for drugs offences, and 13 years for aiding and abetting 13 counts of rape.
