Robertas TRIMAILOVAS

The drugs would have been worth around £1m if sold on the streets of the UK.

Trimailovas was interviewed by NCA officers and subsequently charged with importing a class A drug. He pleaded guilty at Canterbury Crown Court on 10 May, and was sentenced to nine years at the same court today (14 May).

NCA Dover Branch Commander Martin Grace said: “Drug runners like Trimailovas should be in no doubt about our determination to catch them and bring them to justice.

“Class A drugs bring violence and exploitation to our communities, and working with partners like Border Force we are committed to disrupting the organised crime groups involved.”
