A man has been sentenced to more than five years for conspiracy to supply drugs, after police had him extradited from Spain.
Mathew Nyack, 31, of Sheep Way, Redhouse Park, Milton Keynes, pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy to supply class A drugs at Aylesbury Crown Court on 5 September.
He pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court via video link from prison, after police had him extradited to the UK following an extensive investigation by Thames Valley Police’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit.
Nyack was sentenced to five years and three months’ imprisonment.
The charges were one count of conspiracy to supply class A drugs from December 1, 2012, to May 15, 2013, and one count of conspiracy to supply class A drugs from May 16, 2013, to August 2, 2013.
Nyack was part of an organised criminal gang based in Milton Keynes and headed by Michael Mullen, who was sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment for conspiracy to supply class A drugs in January this year.
The gang were involved in the commercial supply of class A drugs (cocaine) and were supplied by a London-based organised criminal gang headed by Wayne Shirley, also sentenced in January to ten-and-a-half years’ imprisonment for conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
This was well-organised and used several different couriers to transport the drugs from London. In the first conspiracy, the courier transported the drugs to Milton Keynes which was then delivered to dealers in Milton Keynes and Northampton, one of whom was Matthew Nyack.
An attempt was made to arrest Matthew Nyack on last year when it was discovered that he had left for Spain. Nyack was later arrested on April 28 in Spain following the execution of a European arrest warrant.
Det Insp Bruce Riddell, from the Serious and Organised Crime Unit, said: “Even though this individual travelled to Spain to evade arrest, we managed to locate him in Murcia, southern Spain and arranged for our Spanish partner agencies to arrest him.
“We will continue to be relentless in our pursuit of organised criminals involved in the supply of controlled drugs wherever they may choose to hide.”
