PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! An 'ordinary' Cheshire dad had a secret life organising international drug deals on behalf of feared crime gangs. Thomas Maher, from Warrington, appeared on the surface to be a successful businessman who had the taste for the fine things in life. He owned nice cars and flash jewellery, and lived in a pleasant but modest home which provided easy access to the nearby M6 and M62, reports the Liverpool Echo. The dad ran a haulage business and enjoyed spoiling his family by taking them for nice food. To his neighbours, Maher was just a successful businessman, however he was actually involved in international drug deals and was in fact a broker for deadly trans-national crime groups.

Maher came to the attention of the NCA after police discovered the bodies of 39 dead Vietnamese migrants who had asphyxiated in the back of a lorry registered in his name. Although police were unable to charge Maher in relation to the deaths, the NCA then became interested in his affairs. Maher's role in the global drug trade became clear when police in Europe managed to penetrate the Encrochat network that he relied on to communicate with associates. On June 13 last year Maher, then 40, was arrested at his Warrington home during a raid by the NCA. He later pleaded guilty to two charges relating to importing Class A drugs into the UK and two charges of money laundering. Maher, originally from Ireland, was jailed for 14 years during a hearing last December for drug and money laundering offences. After Maher was sentenced in December last year senior officers at the NCA spoke about the role he played as a "logistics man" who helped "notorious" crime groups. NCA branch commander Martin Clarke said: “Maher moved in the highest criminal circles, acting as a logistics man for some of the UK, Ireland and Europe’s most notorious organised crime groups who trusted him with their drugs and money. “We believe the offences he has been convicted of represent just the tip of the iceberg in terms of his overall criminality. He bragged in EncroChat messages about being involved in organised crime for over 20 years, during which time it’s highly likely he shipped tonnes of drugs and tens of millions of pounds around Europe. “After a painstaking investigation, we have been able to bring him to justice. And that investigation has not stopped. We will use all the tools available to hit him where it hurts – in the pocket – to ensure he can’t continue his luxury lifestyle when he’s released.” Top stories from the CheshireLive newsletter Here are the latest stories from the CheshireLive newsletter The 22 Cheshire areas that are hotspots for burglary The Cheshire dog stories from this year that will warm your heart Charming Cheshire home with secret roof garden up for sale 21 death notices made in Cheshire this week Want to sign up to receive these stories straight to your inbox?
