A man who was running a drugs line in Bedford has been jailed for more than three years.

Amir Mgari had been running the so-called ‘G-line’, supplying crack cocaine and heroin across the borough.

Officers from Bedfordshire Police’s Boson unit, the specialist guns and gangs’ investigation team, linked the drugs line to a phone used by Mgari, which also contained records of calls to his partner.

“We know drug dealers like him are a real risk to our communities. Violence and exploitation are at the heart of drug crime from the exploitation of children and young people to vulnerable adults being cuckooed and abused. We will not let up in our efforts targeting the people running these drugs lines.”
