Wayne Cleaver and Unyime Davies secure convictions in Operation Trace

18 December 2017

Wayne Cleaver, leading Unyime Davies, has secured convictions in Operation Trace. The trial was the culmination of a large scale undercover operation into Conspiracy to Supply Cocaine undertaken by the Serious Organised Crime Group. Evidence was gathered from multiple sources, including covert surveillance, probe recordings, ANPR, and telephone traffic. Uniquely, this case also involved the analysis and presentation of Caller Line Identity [CLI] ‘Spoofing’ of mobile phone numbers designed to mask or eliminate mobile phone records. Mobile phone usage of this type has never before been presented in a criminal trial and was, therefore, ground-breaking in its presentation by expert witnesses. Wayne and Unyime were instructed by Herts CPS.
