Court heard 178 recordings between Evans and an Asian man called 'Surfin', believed to be Sufryn Butt a mob boss based in Dubai.

Evans said he suffered depression and PTSD.
One message sent by 'Surfin' to Evans about the Skorpion rapid fire machine gun read: 'I'm gonna get a fucking thing dropped off you with you yeah. Just lock it off for us fam. Bad boy artillery, bad boy artillery.' Another said: 'A machine bro, a Skorpz watch when you see it, an absolute bran spanker see through clips and all that.'

Cops connected Evans to a drug seizure at an industrial unit in Salford, Manchester. 25kg of heroin and 7kg of cocaine was seized.
