#Encrochat: Drug dealer John Wayne Cass jailed for 10 years

John Wayne Cass was sentenced this afternoon at Liverpool Crown Court for his role in supplying drugs.

The 34-year-old, of William Roberts Avenue, Westvale in Kirkby was convicted for the following offences; conspiracy to supply a controlled class A drug (cocaine), conspiracy to supply a controlled class B drug (cannabis), conspiracy to convert criminal property (money laundering) and possessing criminal property (money laundering).

At a court hearing in January Cass pleaded not guilty, but after appearing in court again last month he changed his plea to guilty.

The drug dealer was unknown to police until he was pulled over in October 2021 for driving erratically on Whitefield Drive, Kirkby.

He was found with £5,625 and was arrested and charged with possessing criminal property (money laundering)

Detectives at Merseyside Police working on Operation Venetic later discovered his fingerprints matched those in a photograph recovered from an Encrochat handle called Frostfortress.

Operation Venetic is an international operation targeting criminals who used a mobile encryption service to deal drugs, commonly referred to as Encrochat, in an attempt to evade detection.

It was found that Encrochat data between 26 March 2020 and 4 June 2020 evidenced his involvement in the supply of 14kg of cocaine, 58.5kg of cannabis and the laundering of £147,000 in cash.

Detective Inspector Peter McCullough said: "Evidence showed that Cass was a major drug dealer and dealt with huge quantities of cocaine and cannabis which flooded the streets.

"He had flown under the radar of police and it was thanks to the vigilance of officers on patrol that he came to our attention, when they spotted his erratic driving.

"We welcome today’s sentencing which highlights another successful conviction under Operation Venetic in our fight against organised crime, preventing Cass from flooding the streets with drugs.
