Two men have been sentenced today to over 14 years for their role in conspiring to supply ten kilos of cocaine in London.
In November 2017, officers from the joint National Crime Agency and Metropolitan Police’s Organised Crime Partnerships (OCP) arrested Mark Lammin (44) from Endlebury Road, London after they stopped him carrying ten kilos of cocaine in a large holdall in Castle Road, Surrey.
A short time later, officers stopped a black Range Rover, which was parked in the vicinity of the drugs handover and arrested Gurdip Samra (44) from Leveret Close, Guildford.
During a search of Lammin’s home address, officers found a stun gun and charged him with possessing a prohibited weapon. He and Samra were also charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
Lammin (Right) and Samra (Left) both appeared today at Kingston Crown Court and were sentenced to six years, six months and seven years, eight months respectively.
Matt McMillan from the Organised Crime Partnership said:
“Lammin was blatantly walking the streets of London with ten kilos of cocaine in a holdall – that he pleaded guilty at the first opportunity shows that he knew exactly what he was doing. The fact he was also in possession of a prohibited weapon highlights the risk he posed.
“The supply and trafficking of drugs is a business which relies on cash flow – the loss of an expensive commodity will stall transactions on both sides, creating a lack of trust between crime groups. Disrupting the supply of class A drugs is crucial in our efforts to tackle organised crime and the violence it causes in and around London.”
