Yeovil County Lines – 6 charged
Earlier this week we reported on a Police operation to interrupt a county lines operation in Yeovil. Addresses in London and Yeovil were searched and a quantity of class A drugs were seized. Officers and staff in our neighbourhood teams, CID, Operation Remedy and operational support teams took part.
Today Police have confirmed that 6 people will now be charged with offences related to county lines drug supply. The six people charged are:
- Kyeron Silk, 27 and from Yeovil;
- Sonny Sheppard, 31 and from Greenwich;
- Kevin Sheppard, 50 and from Bridgwater;
- Bianca Gillespie, 32 of no fixed address;
- Tia Heenan, 24 and from Soho; and
- Sulaiman Musa, 30 and from Greenwich.
They are all due to appear at North Somerset Courthouse today (Friday 12 February). Eight other people who were arrested during the operation, have been released under investigation.
Avon & Somerset Police Inspector Elaine Costanza expressed her gratitude: “We’d like to thank the public for their support. People coming forward with crucial information about suspected crimes in their communities makes a big difference to policing and enables us to take proactive action.”
