Guildford man jailed after 10 kilo cocaine bust

Published at 12:47pm 1st May 2018. (Updated at 1:40pm 1st May 2018)

Two men have been sentenced after police seized 10 kilos of cocaine in Weybridge.

Mark Lammin was stopped by officers from the joint National Crime Agency and Metropolitan Police's Organised Crime Partnerships in November 2017.

The 44 year-old was carrying the drugs in a large holdall along Castle Road.

During a further search of his home address in Endlebury Road, London, officers also found a stun gun.

Shortly after the cocaine was seized, police arrested Gurdip Samra from Leveret Close in Guildford. The 44 year-old was stopped in a black Range Rover in the area of the drugs handover.

The pair were charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs, with Lammin also charged with possessing a prohibited weapon.

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."

Lammin was sentenced to six years and six months at Kingston Crown Court on Monday 30 April. Samra was sentenced to seven years and eight months.

Mr McMillan added: "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."
