Detective Inspector Lee Wilkinson who was involved in the case said: “Carl Stewart was involved in supplying large amounts of class A and B drugs, but was caught out by his love of Stilton cheese, after sharing a picture of a block of it in his hand.
“His palm and fingerprints were analysed from this picture and it was established they belonged to Stewart.
“Stewart was handed a substantial sentence of 13 years and six months, and this should serve as a stark warning to anyone involved in this criminality that there are serious consequences.
“Merseyside Police, along with law enforcement agencies across the world, will leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of those people who think they are above the law, and we will continue to target anyone involved in serious organised crime to keep this positive momentum going.”
Look it’s not glamorous is it? It's more Line of Dairy than Line of Duty. But nevertheless, just goes to show if you want to be the big cheese in the drug world, maybe you need to eat less big... cheese.
