Two siblings have been incarcerated for trafficking Class A narcotics in Wigan.

The duo came under scrutiny by officers from Greater Manchester Police’s County Lines Team, who tracked their movements through CCTV and phone records.

Executing a warrant at Wigan Lower Road in Wigan on 28th February 2023, law enforcement found Mohammed dozing in the bedroom, while Meisam slept on the living room floor.

During a search, approximately £3,226 in cash was discovered spread across the bathroom, living room, and kitchen, alongside drug-related paraphernalia.

Both their vehicles underwent search and seizure, yielding about 185g of cocaine, packaging bags, and digital scales.

Furthermore, authorities stumbled upon an iPhone displaying multiple messages on the lock screen detailing drug supply arrangements.

The brothers were sentenced for possession with intent to supply and involvement in the distribution of Class A substances.

Appearing at Bolton Crown Court on Wednesday, 6th December, both brothers were sentenced to 6 years and 8 months behind bars each.

Detective Constable Adam Kay, from the force’s County Lines Team, commented: “The Abvabi brothers ran their own network for drug supply, using mobile phones to market the sale of crack cocaine to individuals grappling with addiction.

“Operating throughout Wigan and in collaboration with criminals in Liverpool, they were incredibly active, running their drug lines incessantly.

“Further evidence seized upon their arrests solidified their status as organized criminals, leaving them no option but to plead guilty and await their consequences.”
