The men all played varying roles in the botched attempt to import 70 kg of the Class B drug, with a street value of £400,000, in a boat from France to Jersey in November last year and were sent to prison for different periods of time.
The ringleader, John O’Connor (48), of Liverpool, was sentenced to nine years, Alan James Smitton (34), of Havre des Pas, was sent to prison for eight years, Tony Carl Norman Courval (28), of St Clement, and Neil Andrew Heskin (27), of Liverpool, were both sentenced to six-and-a half years, Jeremy Godel Le Geyt (46), of Commercial Buildings, was sentenced to six years, Edward George Sandland (25), of Grosvenor Terrace, was sentenced to five and a half years, Stuart Anthony Boylan (26), of St Saviour, was imprisoned for five years, and David Gray Buchanan (43), of Apsley Road, was sentenced to four years.
The men had all admitted conspiring to import cannabis into Jersey at previous court hearings.
They were arrested at the end of a police and Customs operation that had tracked their movements and conversations for a number of months.
The trap was sprung after the gang landed 279 bars of cannabis resin in Belcroute Bay in St Brelade on the night of 18 November.
