Two people arrested as part of a major police drugs operation centred on Boston have escaped immediate jail sentences at Lincoln Crown Court.

Paula Jackson and Jaoa Dos Reis were both detained as part of investigations into the supply of M Cat, amphetamine, cocaine and heroin from Liverpool into Hull via Boston over a six month period in 2014.

Gordon Aspden, prosecuting, said that Jackson was the least involved of those who admitted drug offences while Jaoa Dos Reis was not involved with drugs but had possession of £2,365 cash which was criminal property.

Paula Jackson, 43, of Wimbourne Close, Hull, admitted supply of cannabis resin and permitting premises to be used for drugs supply. She was given an eight month jail sentence suspended for 18 months with 100 hours of unpaid work.

Joao Dos Reis, 59, of Parthian Avenue, Boston, admitted possession of criminal property. He was given a 12 month community order with 100 hours of unpaid work.

15 other defendants who have admitted their roles in the drug supply operation are to be sentenced on Friday.
