This is the face of man who ran the 'Jabba' drugs line, which flooded communities with crack cocaine and heroin.

As part of a county lines investigation into the supply of Class A drugs in Liverpool, Jamie McGivern, 24, of Francine Close, in Vauxhall, was found to be the controller of the drugs line in North Liverpool.

He was arrested at his home address in January this year and was later charged and remanded in custody.

Today, June 10, McGivern was jailed for four and a half years by Liverpool Crown Court for being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs (crack cocaine and heroin), possession of controlled Class A and B drugs (cocaine and cannabis), possession of criminal property and possession of an offensive weapon.

Detective Sergeant Gerard Farley of Merseyside Police said: “Through our investigation, we were able to prove that McGivern was the controller of a drugs line in North Liverpool. The jailing of criminals like McGivern who sell drugs and harm vulnerable people in our communities continues on a daily basis.

"We know the devastation that drugs cause and Merseyside Police remains relentless in our pursuit of these criminals and ending their drugs trade.

“We thank the public who share information with us about drug dealing or any vulnerability they see because this intelligence is vital to protecting our communities.”
