Rochdale woman jailed for five years on drug charges and money laundering

Date published: 20 November 2019

A woman from Rochdale was sentenced last month to five years in jail for money laundering and the supplying of Class A drugs.

Naliah Noreen, 23, of Rochdale, appeared in Minshull Crown Court on 24 October where she was charged with one count of money laundering and two counts of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs, including cocaine and heroin.

The mother of one was sentenced to 12 months in prison for money laundering and the two counts of conspiracy to supply drugs had a 60-month sentence each.

Noreen has been jailed for five years, serving a concurrent 60-month sentence.

She initially pleaded not guilty but changed her plea to guilty in February earlier this year.

Noreen and her family collectively ran five drug hotlines which made and took 54,000 calls in a four-month period.

The drug gang was found to be using a teenager to deliver the cocaine and heroin to users. The group would drive the 15-year old around housing estates in Rochdale making door-to-door deliveries of Class A drugs.
