Wayne Cleaver, leading Duncan O’Donnell, opens the case in Operation Rose

26 April 2019

Operation Rose is the culmination of a large scale under-cover police investigation into ‘county lines’ drug supply. The supply network extended from London to Shropshire, Norwich, and North Wales resulting in the arrest of eleven suspects. The case involves the presentation of a labyrinth of phone material, covert observations, and test purchases. The trial at Chelmsford Crown Court is expected to last four weeks. Wayne and Duncan are instructed by Essex CCU as part of Operation Raptor.
