TWO people from Portsmouth have been charged in relation to a drugs gang accused of trafficking young people carrying Class A drugs from London to the city.
Raids were also conducted in London and Kent.
Officers have been working with forces including the Metropolitan Police’s Trident Central Gangs Unit for around four months on the case so far.
Following the raids, Gavin Gimson, 42, of St Chad’s Avenue was charged with one count of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
Tamsin Jones, 31, of no fixed abode, formerly of Portsmouth, has been charged with the same offence.
They have both been held on remand and will next appear at Woolwich Crown Court on September 25.
Glodi Wabelwa, 20, of Lordship Lane, Tottenham, and Michael Atkinson, 32, of Trinity Gardens, Folkestone in Kent, have also been charged with one count of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and will appear at court on the same day.
A 20-year-old man was also produced from HMP Winchester and arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs, inciting the supply of Class A drugs and human trafficking.
He has been bailed, and returned to prison.
