Marlborough Express - - NEWS -

The sen­tenc­ing of a cross-coun­try drug syn­di­cate boss has been de­layed. Dal­las Oran Ed­ward Shave, 37, pleaded guilty to a rep­re­sen­ta­tive charge of sup­ply­ing meth, three counts of pos­sess­ing an il­le­gal firearm, and con­spir­ing to sell meth in De­cem­ber. Shave was one of seven peo­ple ar­rested af­ter Op­er­a­tion Book, a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the meth ring. Po­lice cal­cu­lated the group sold more than 600 grams of meth in Marl­bor­ough be­tween Septem­ber 2015 and Fe­bru­ary 2016, with an es­ti­mated street value of up to $739,000. Shave was sup­posed to be sen­tenced on Fe­bru­ary 15, but the case was ad­journed to the Blenheim District Court on April 24. A Blenheim woman and an Auck­land woman also charged dur­ing Op­er­a­tion Book have en­tered not guilty pleas and will ap­pear on Tues­day for a pre-trial callover.
