Two sisters who ran a drugs ring in Bury, Greater Manchester, have been ordered to pay back more than £300,000 which they laundered through their beauty salon, according to reports.

Shazia Din, 44, and Abia Din, 47, ran a beauty business called The Beauty Booth as a money laundering operation.

They were jailed in 2020 and have now been forced to pay the amount back.

During a hearing at Manchester Crown Court on Tuesday (30), the judge confiscated a total of £345,031 from seven people involved in the crime.

According to reports, the sisters supplied MDMA, heroin and cocaine to clients in their salon.

Shaiza Din was sentenced to 15 years in prison. She pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and intent to supply Class B drugs, including cannabis, as well as conspiracy to convert and transfer criminal property.

Abia Din pleaded guilty to conversion and transfer of criminal property and was convicted by a jury of conspiracy to supply drugs. She was sentenced to 18 years in prison.

Shaiza had £259,079 confiscated, while Abia will lose £49,478.

A GMP spokesman said: “A total of £736,464.30 was seized from all the people involved in the drug ring, including those who were instrumental in running the drugs between Manchester and Yorkshire.

“More than 60 kilograms of Class A drugs – including heroin and cocaine – were seized in the operation, as well as £300,000 in cash, a hydraulic press, drug paraphernalia, a gun and ammunition. The members of the conspiracy were sentenced to a total of 140 years.”

Following Greater Manchester Police’s Operation Heart, 20 people were arrested, convicted and sentenced for their role in the operation from December 2018 to July 2019.

Prosecutor Andrew Ford told the court that Shazia’s relationship with Peter Wrafter, 57, resulted in the supply and distribution of heroin, cocaine and amphetamines in networks across South Yorkshire.

When he was arrested, Shazia “promoted” her son Hassan, then 21, and Natalie Wrafter, 31, took over from her father, the court heard.

Hassan Din pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply class B drugs and conspiracy to transfer criminal property. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison. Natalie Wrafter was jailed for 11 years and three months for similar drug offences.

Detective Chief Inspector Roger Smethurst said: “We are extremely satisfied with the results of the confiscation hearing and the case as a whole. The officers involved worked tirelessly to secure convictions against instrumental members of an organized crime ring operating in Greater Manchester.

“We hope this serves as a reminder to everyone that we continue to investigate and secure convictions in large-scale drug operations.”
