One of Britain’s biggest drugs dealers has been convicted for his part in running £68m of cocaine and cannabis into the UK. James Mulvey, who lived like “a ghost” to evade justice, was found guilty on a majority verdict of two counts of conspiring to bring cocaine into England, and two counts of conspiring to smuggle cannabis into the country, between 2006 and 2007. Following the verdicts on Wednesday, which came after a 10-week trial at Birmingham Crown Court, the National Crime Agency (NCA) said Mulvey’s reputation as a criminal “untouchable” had been shattered. In his attempts to avoid law enforcement, Mulvey never stayed in one place too long and checked into to hotels for seven years, which were paid for in cash, sometimes by third parties. In a bid to throw off law enforcement, Mulvey never stayed in one place too long, checking in to hotels for seven years, paid for in cash – sometimes by third parties. He routinely used so-called burner mobile phones, making his movements difficult to track.   The 42-year-old, originally from Solihull, West Midlands, moved to Spain when the police started closing in on the sophisticated smuggling operation he helped run.
