Main article content
Three Corby men have been jailed for a total of 27 years after being convicted of drugs offences as part of Northamptonshire Police’s Operation Viper.
David Gourlay, 31, previously of Rossetti Road, Sorrell Carr, 44, previously of Larch Road, and Peter Cummings, 34, previously of Holyrood Walk, were each given nine years in prison at Northampton Crown Court on Thursday, January 30, for Conspiracy to Supply Class A Drugs and for Assisting in the Commission of Class A Drug Offences.
Lead Investigator, DC Scott Allan, said: “I welcome the sentences handed out to Gourlay, Carr and Cummings and I hope they spend their time in prison reflecting on the bad choices they have made in order to make better ones when they are released.”
Operation Viper is the Force’s operation to crack down on those involved in drug and gang related crime. It tackles the supply of Class A drugs, focusing on organised crime groups, gangs, local drug lines, and County Lines.
Detective Chief Inspector, Lee McBride, who is the Force lead for Operation Viper, said: “One of our top priorities at Northamptonshire Police is to crack down on drug and gang related crime and this case demonstrates that – three drug dealers taken off our streets and put behind bars.
“Operation Viper will continue to be relentless in the pursuing of anyone thought to be involved in the supply of drugs and as you can see from this case, the time you can spend in jail as a result can be significant.”
