Helicopter footage shows the moment drug kingpin Jamie Simpson, 31 was arrested on the motorway near Knutsford, Cheshire, after police vehicles surrounded his Ford Transit. Officers found 186 kilos of high purity cocaine worth an estimated £20million, hidden under the floor of the van as well as in the passenger seat and stuffed inside boxes. The raid was part of a covert police investigation called Operation Dreadnought into Warrington based organised crime groups lead by Simpson and Jamie Oldroyd. Cheshire Police said the ‘gangster lifestyles’ led by the two ringleaders and gang members led to their arrests, as they flaunted their wealth. Detectives said the gang led ‘cash rich’ lives and drive fast, high-powered cars – with Oldroyd driving 17 different cars during the 14 months he was under surveillance. Ringleaders Jamie Oldroyd and Jamie Simpson were jailed for total of nearly 26 years.
