Gangs of Albanian drug dealers are now ‘a significant threat’ on Britain’s streets, police chiefs warned yesterday.
They said organised crime groups from the tiny Balkan country now have ‘high-level influence’ on supplying cocaine around the country.
They are believed to have worked with Manchester’s more established gangs – but were arming themselves with guns in case of conflict.
One of the main players, Mevlan Gjeta, 33, was last year jailed for eight years after a kilo of cocaine plus £55,000 were found at his flat.
