Drug Trafficker Lands 11 Years In Jail After CCC Investigation

A man caught in a year-long police investigation into a tri-state heroin trafficking network has been sentenced to more than 11 years in jail.

Mark Raymond Jacobs was handed an 11.5-year sentence on charges including drug trafficking, extortion and misconduct in public office earlier this month, the Crime and Corruption Commission announced on Monday.

In a statement, the CCC said Jacobs was a “high-level” target of Operation Lightning, which in 2012 busted a Romanian drug ring believed to have trafficked 30 kilograms of heroin (worth about $30 million) into Queensland over 10 years.
