Wanted drug supplier Stephen Bennett caught by 'Titan'

A Merseyside man wanted by the courts having been convicted of conspiring to supply heroin and cocaine, has now been caught and arrested by 'Titan', the North West regional organised crime unit with the assistance of Merseyside Police.

Stephen Bennett, aged 34, from Crompton Street, Vauxhall was arrested, on 2 January 2017, in the Vauxhall area by Titan detectives following an operation to catch him.

Bennett was convicted by a jury at Liverpool Crown Court in 2015 for his role in a multi million pound drugs conspiracy involving criminals from Merseyside and Cumbria. Bennett was found guilty of being involved in the supply of heroin and cocaine into the Workington area.

11 other members of the wider organised crime group investigated by Titan were jailed for a total of 90 years, on 21 December 2015, but Bennett failed to appear and a judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest.

Bennett was also wanted by Merseyside Police for breaching the conditions of his release from prison on licence following his conviction for an attempted murder in 2004 for which he received a 14 year sentence.

Following this arrest Bennett was kept in Police custody and will appear before Liverpool Crown Court, to be sentenced, on a date yet to be determined.
