5 criminals locked up in Nottingham this week

This week ended with drug dealer Daniel Bickerton going to prison for more than five years for supplying crack cocaine and cocaine, and having a loaded shotgun in his Mansfield home. Nottingham Crown Court heard he had broadly boasted he was able to make "high-quality crack cocaine" and "the best in the area".

He even re-enacted a scene from the movie Taxi Driver, as he loaded and pointed a gun at his camera phone, and was recorded on film racking the slide of a pistol after he had been beaten up and warned that "people would pay the consequences".

His case was sentenced on Friday (February 3) after 40-year-old Bickerton of Prices Street, Mansfield, pleaded guilty to possessing an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, possessing a shotgun and ammunition, and supplying cocaine and crack cocaine.

Other cases this week included two men - Albanian chef Klajdi Egra and friend Aurel Shima - of Tremayne Road, Bilborough, who went to jail on Wednesday (February 1) after a large amount of cannabis was found. Egra pleaded guilty to producing cannabis and possessing cannabis with intent to supply and went to prison for three-and-a-half years.
