Those charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs were:

Four have been remanded into custody and will appear at Lincoln Crown Court at a later date. Teresa Murphy and Shauna Rivers have been released on police bail. Enquiries are still ongoing.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Sergeant Simon Dovaston said: “I’d like to give thanks to all officers involved in this investigation, with resources from response and neighbourhood policing teams, operational support teams and the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for their hard work and their efforts in tackling illegal drugs supply and drug use in Boston.

“It also reiterates our message that this type of criminality will not be tolerated in Boston and wherever we can, we will work hard to take action and take drugs off our streets. We’d like to thank the public for their help and support while officers continue with the investigation.”
