'Locks' gang admits selling narcotics on street
A GANG of drug dealers going under the ‘trade name’ Locks have admitted their part in the supply of hard drugs.
Six member of the group pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply class A drugs between July and December last year when they appeared at Swindon Crown Court.
Now the defendants have been warned to expect jail terms for their part in selling narcotics on the streets of Swindon.
Hannah Squire, prosecuting, said the gang had its roots in London but traded under the name 'Locks' last year.
She said Ares Agnelli, 26, of Graham Street, was found with the phone which the gang used and said he was in a 'managerial role'.
And among the other five is Gary Turner, 34, of Frobisher Drive, who was spared jail last month for a burglary where he left a bottle of his urine behind.
The others are Valentino Aloba, 24, of Westcott Place; Shane Harper, 23, of no fixed abode; Rahim Moussa, 24, of Gooch Street; and Barkhad Jama, 29, of West Drayton, Middlesex.
Judge Douglas Filed adjourned the case to a date to be fixed, remanding Agnelli in custody and releasing the others on conditional bail.
The charges were dropped against a seventh man, James Draper, 32, of Collingsmead, Eldene.
