30 year old Roan Omoworarare of Bloomfield Street in Ipswich, 33 year old Dale Ramsey of Felixstowe Road in Ipswich and 27 year old Marley Bagley of Beadon Way in Woodbridge were all found guilty at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday 31 July after a trial lasting about three weeks.
The case concerned the large-scale supply and distribution of multi kilogram amounts of cocaine and cannabis using a secretive communications network called ‘Encrochat’.
In 2020 law enforcement agencies in Europe gained access to this secure communications service, used by organised criminals to communicate with each other. Omowoarare was evidentially attributed to the EncroChat handle ‘mowgli-thirtysix’, while Bagley has been evidentially attributed to ‘artful todger’.
All three were found guilty of conspiracy to supply class A from 10 July 2019 to 16 September 2020.
Omoworarare, Ramsey and Bagley were also found guilty of conspiracy to supply class B drugs from 10 July 2019 to 16 September 2020.
Sentencing of the trio took place yesterday (Tues 1 August) where Omoworarare was given a 15 year sentence for conspiracy to supply class A drugs and 7 year sentence for conspiracy to supply class B drugs to run concurrently. Ramsey was given a seven and half year sentence for conspiracy to supply class A drugs and two year sentence for conspiracy to supply class B drugs to run concurrently. Bagley was given a 10 year sentence for conspiracy to supply class A drugs and four year sentence for conspiracy to supply class B drugs to run concurrently.
