This November, gang lord Curtis Warren is set to be freed from jail after serving his sentence of 13 years. In 2009 he was arrested for smuggling cannabis to Jersey worth £1million.
What could be gang lord Curtis Warren’s life after prison?
Curtis Warrens was an infamous drug lord with a connection to Manchester and had spent decades of his life in prison. This coming November, he will have his “freedom.”
“Cocky Warren,” as he was called, is on a list that the National Crime Agency published. The record is about involved individuals in organised crime who have been issued with resolute crime prevention orders. After his release, Warren must face five years of restrictions on using cars, phones, and property.
His constraints also include travelling overseas, borrowing money, making transfers, holding shares or trusts, and using foreign money or cryptocurrencies. Further, he must not have any belongings or resources over £1,000 despite the alleged £198 million he stashed away.
While in jail, Warren already receives offers about his life story, including the endless police monitoring. Likewise, he will realise a criminal world in pandemonium because of the Encrochat network hacking. Sources close to him said that he has been flooded with letters and promises of a lucrative money deal for his life story’s screen adaptation.
“There’s no chance Curtis will get back in the game once he’s out. Not only would it be a daft move as he will have eyes on him everywhere he goes, he’s just not interested. He’s actually had loads of offers from film and documentary makers. Big names in Hollywood. Big streaming giants have also been offering big numbers for his story.” said an underworld source.
The only thing that could be holding Warren back is that he will be shoved into the public eye. That is something he is not accustomed because he needs to stay in the shadows.
EncroChat network hacking exposed Curtis Warren and other criminals
EncroChat was a worldwide encrypted phone network and one of the biggest inscribed communications services. Approximately, it has 60,000 subscribers throughout Europe, encompassing 10,000 users in the United Kingdom. Criminals use it since 2016, including Warren before his arrest. It can be compared to the messaging app, Sky ECC that led to the capture of Detroit drug kingpin, Ylli Didani.
The network provides a pre-loaded EncroPhone to the carrier user. The device is equipped with private messaging apps, which could send picture messages and texts to other EncroChat users. The network disabled the mic, GPS, and camera for added security.
Faye Dunn also used EncroChat. She used to be an English football player who turned into a drug queen. She worked as an accountant for a gang that smuggle cannabis. Her father, Michael Dunn also
worked for the drug organisation using EncroChat. He managed and delivered drugs on his daughter’s behalf and scheduled meetings for cash transfers.
“Significantly, she appears to have acted as the accountant for the organised criminal enterprise and has concealed not only her EncroChat device but also cash when travelling abroad in order to evade detection by the authorities,” said the investigators.
Both father and daughter will have to return the benefits of their involvement under the Proceeds of Crime Act. Next year, they will appear before the same court for another trial.
