OCP officers searched his home where they found another 8.5 kilos of cocaine worth approximately £800,000.

Sufaj pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply cocaine and was sentenced at Kingston Crown Court

Matt McMillan, from the NCA, said: “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.

“Working with our partners from the Met we have stopped nearly £1m of cocaine from getting onto the streets on the UK.”

Following his sentence Sufaj will be deported to Albania.
