(BIRMINGHAM, U.K.) Court Report: A drug smuggler who used coconuts to hide almost 140 kilos of herbal cannabis sent from Ghana has been jailed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.06: The container arrived in the UK on 13 July 2018 and, when opened and examined by Border Force officers, contained sacks of coconuts with plastic wrapped herbal cannabis hidden inside the fruits…….

#AceDailyNews reports that a smuggler who hid 138kg of cannabis in coconuts jailed: Richard Myers, 53, from Smethwick, West Midlands, was arrested as part of a National Crime Agency investigation after a consignment destined for his business, Soul Foods, was searched.

Richard Myers drugs

The drugs weighed almost 138 kilos. A further block of cannabis weighing 497 grams was found at Myers’ home. 

The drugs would have been worth £650,000 if sold on the streets of the UK. 

The NCA investigation found Myers had travelled to Ghana to see the drugs loaded before returning to the UK.

Myers had previously been convicted of drug smuggling in 1995 when cannabis was found concealed in his false bottomed suitcase. 

He had also been convicted of importing drugs into Sweden and possession of cannabis when he tried to return to the UK from Jamaica with 10.45kg and 4.54kg in his luggage on two occasions in 2002 and 2003.

Myers was interviewed by NCA officers and refused to answer any questions about Soul Foods. He was subsequently charged with importing cannabis and possession with intent to supply cannabis.

He denied the charges but was found guilty following a trial at Birmingham Crown Court.

Myers was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years imprisonment at the same court on 20 August.

NCA senior investigating officer Paul Boniface said: Myers travelled to Ghana to ensure these drugs were on their way, hiding them in coconuts in the hope they would seem to be a legitimate business transaction: This was not his first attempt at importation and Myers appeared intent on bringing cannabis onto the streets of the UK: The NCA will continue to work to tackle the drugs trade and will work with our Border Force partners to stop people like Myers from fuelling illegal and exploitative criminal networks.”

(PORTSMOUTH) Crown Court Report: A man has been given a suspended sentence after buying horrific sexual abuse footage of girls blackmailed by one of the worst online sexual predators the National Crime Agency has ever investigated #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.28: Corbin, who has recently changed his name by deed poll to Kevin Smith, was sentenced at Portsmouth Crown Court to 16 months in jail suspended for two years….

#AceDailyNews reports that an online-child-sex-offender was customer of notorious paedophile and blackmailer who targeted nearly 2,000 people globally to commit sickening sexual abuse of themselves and others. He blackmailed worldwide victims into sending him humiliating and degrading videos and pictures of themselves, children and siblings which he sold online…..Ashley Corbin, 35, paid Abdul Elahi, 26, £295 in Amazon vouchers and £40 via PayPal for sexual footage of girls Elahi had blackmailed.

Ashley Corbin

Elahi, of Sparkhill, Birmingham, is due to be sentenced next month after admitting 158 charges.

He was also given a 10 year sexual harm prevention order after admitting three counts of making indecent images of children.

On 28 June 2019, NCA officers linked to the Elahi investigation arrested Corbin – a maintenance manager – at his home in West Downs Close, Fareham, Hampshire.

Officers discovered that Corbin had bought abuse material from Elahi on four occasions with Amazon vouchers: on 5 March 2018 with a £25 giftcard; on 7 May 2018 with a £50 giftcard; a £40 giftcard on the same day; and a £180 giftcard on 10 May 2018.

NCA investigators also discovered Corbin had paid Elahi £40 via PayPal on 4 March 2018 for abuse content transferred to his online Dropbox account.

The Dropbox account contained 326 sexual abuse videos and images of girls aged between 12 and 16. There were 43 Category A images (the most severe), 26 Category B and 257 Category C.

Many of the children had been forced to state their name and age on camera.

NCA officers seized Corbin’s computers and discovered he also had an Asus tower containing 130 images and videos, and 4,534 images and videos on cloud accounts.

In total Corbin had 329 Category A images, 604 Category B and 4,990 Category C.

Forensic study of Corbin’s cloud accounts showed that on the day he was released from custody after being arrested, 494 files were deleted from one account and 182 deleted from another.

Andy Peach, NCA senior investigating officer, said: “This was one of a series of investigations into paedophiles who bought Abul Elahi’s horrific content and encouraged him to keep offending.

“Anyone who buys or accesses material like this is fundamentally responsible for more and more children being sexually abused and the lives that are wrecked because of it.

“For the NCA there is no greater priority than protecting children. We will never stop hunting men like Corbin and Elahi.”

Anybody who believes they may have been a victim of Elahi, or have information about his offending, can contact the NCA at Op.Makedom@nca.gov.uk

Child protection charity The Lucy Faithfull Foundation runs the Stop It Now! helpline which offers confidential advice to anyone concerned about their own or someone else’s behaviour towards children.

#paedophile, #portsmouth, #u-k-court

(NEWCASTLE, U.K.) Court Report: A former community police officer who used his position to groom and sexually exploit vulnerable women has been sentenced to 20-months in prison suspended for 2yrs #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.25: He initially portrayed himself as professional and trustworthy, becoming a means of support to the women, as they were beginning to get their lives back on track following their abuse. But his interactions became increasingly inappropriate and sexual in nature, with both victims feeling too intimidated to speak out due to his position as a police officer….

#AceDailyNews reports that Ex-police officer Erling Leask, 56, who was a community police officer with Northumbria Police, befriended the two domestic abuse victims in the early 2000s whilst on duty, before taking advantage of them …..

20 August 2021:

Leask’s first victim decided to report him to police years later when the distress caused by his abuse came back to her after she saw him leave a betting shop. Following this report, police contacted his second victim after the investigation revealed evidence of her complaint of indecent assault when Leask forcibly kissed her. 

The woman described how the aftermath of the assault led her to drop out of college and left her feeling scared, belittled, and untrusting.

He was today sentenced to 20-months imprisonment suspended for two years at Newcastle Crown Court, and is required to carry out 100 hours unpaid work and participate in Rehabilitation Activity Requirement for a maximum of 50 days.

He pleaded guilty in May to one count of indecent assault and two counts of misconduct in public office.

Debbie Breen, District Crown Prosecutor for CPS North East, said: “Leask grossly abused his power as a police officer, selfishly taking advantage of two vulnerable women in the pursuit of his own sexual gratification. He showed no regard for the immense impact his actions had on them: I commend the bravery of both women in reporting Leask and supporting the prosecution’s case: At the CPS, where the evidence and public interest tests are met, we will always bring charges against sexual predators no matter the length of time between the offences and reporting. We want all victims who report to see their day in court.”

Additional Notes;

  • Erling Leask (04/12/64), pleaded guilty in May 2021 to one count of indecent assault and two counts of misconduct in public office. He is today (20/08/21) sentenced to 20-months imprisonment suspended for two years, and is required to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work and participate in Rehabilitation Activity Requirement for a maximum of 50 days. 
  • Debbie Breen is a District Crown Prosecutor for CPS North East’s Rape and Serious Sexual Offence (RASSO) Unit

(NEWCASTLE, U.K.) Crown Court Report: A man has been found guilty of attempting to smuggle cocaine with an estimated street value of £160k into the U.K after a “Christmas shopping” trip with his wife in the Netherlands #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.30: On 19 December, Hart had travelled to Eersel in the Netherlands, later telling officers the trip had been to buy Christmas presents, as well as to collect a motorcycle and parts for his family’s hobby of international motocross racing……..

#AceDailyNews reports that a man tried to smuggle drugs into the U.K. after Netherlands Christmas shopping trip with his wife and ‘The National Crime Agency’ investigated after a van hired by Sean Hart, 40, from Newcastle, was stopped at the Eurotunnel controls in Coquelles, France in December 2016 he was arrested and later charged.

2 x Packages removed from concealment

After stopping the van on its return journey to the UK, Border Force officers discovered two packages of cocaine weighing a total of 2kg concealed in the dashboard. The cocaine would be worth an estimated £60k at wholesale and £160k at street level.

Today [27 July], Sean Hart was convicted of importing a class A drug after a seven day trial at Newcastle Crown Court: He is due to be sentenced on 15 September at the same location.

NCA Operations Manager Julie Booker said: “This was a blatant attempt to smuggle illegal drugs into the UK under the guise of travelling to do his Christmas shopping. Not only was Sean Hart prevented from making money from importing class A drugs, he now faces the prospect of prison time: “Illegal drugs are at the root of considerable violence and exploitation. We will continue to work with partners like Border Force to keep our communities safe by preventing class A drugs from entering the country.”

A second defendant was found not guilty after the same trial.

#eurotunnel, #france, #nca, #netherlands, #newcastle, #u-k-court

(CAMBRIDGE, U.K.) Crown Court Report: A man has been found guilty of murdering his partner’s teenage daughter after she told her mother he had been sexually abusing her for seven years #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.29: This was the last time Bea was seen. Her body has never been found and it is thought likely Scott Walker disposed of Bea in the countryside near Peterborough….

#AceDailyNews reports that a teenager has been murdered to stop her speaking out about sexual abuse Scott Walker, 51, carried out the murder in a 90-minute period when he was meant to be driving 17-year-old Bernadette Walker, known as Bea, from his parents’ house to their family home on Saturday 18 July last year.

Bernadette 'Bea' Walker

Bernadette ‘Bea’ Walker

On 17 July Bea had stayed overnight at the home of Scott Walker’s parents after a family row about the allegations. Her mother, Sarah Walker, 38, had not believed Bea when she told her the day before about the sexual abuse.

The prosecution said that shortly after killing her Walker called Sarah, to tell her what he had done and asked her to help him cover up Bea’s death and buy them both time to work out what should happen next. They then concocted a story which was intended to mislead and pervert the investigation into the disappearance and death of Bea.

Later that night they drove to a lock-up garage where the prosecution believe Bea’s possessions and mobile telephone may have been stored. Scott Walker went back and forth from the garage that night and over the next two days. Sarah went with him on some of those trips, including to outlying areas of Peterborough and to the area of Cowbit in Spalding and to the East of Gunthorpe. The prosecution team pieced together their movements through GPS and cell site data on their mobile phones, the movement of the car from CCTV and police automated number plate recognition (ANPR) data..

The story the pair invented and which they stuck to throughout their trial at Cambridge Crown Court was that Scott Walker stopped the car to confront Bea about her allegations of sexual abuse against him. She then jumped out and walked off leaving her backpack with her few belongings in the car. He told police that he went after her, but she disappeared down an alleyway and he went home without Bea.

Meanwhile, Sarah Walker used Bea’s mobile phone to send fake text messages to her friends, Bea’s friends, and to family members supposedly from Bea confessing she had run off because she lied about the abuse and did not want to get into trouble. They did not report her missing to the police until 21 July and by then they had laid the false trail and had disposed of Bea’s body.

Scott Walker and Sarah Walker

Nicola Rice, senior prosecutor from CPS East of England said: “On the morning of the 18 July, Scott Walker went to collect Bea from his parent’s home. Prior to doing this he went to his lock-up garage. When he arrived, he was told that Bea was still maintaining that he had sexually abused her. He drove off from his parents with Bea. This was the last time that anyone saw Bea. Shortly after his mobile phone was sited in the countryside outside of Peterborough and then switched off for 90 minutes. This is where and when the prosecution say that Bea was killed: He then telephoned Sarah Walker and they talked for nine minutes. The Crown’s case was that it was in this time that, knowing Bea was dead, that they concocted a plan and began to lay a false trail that she was missing. They went to extraordinary levels of deceit to cover-up what happened, telling a web of lies to family members, friends and ultimately to the police.

“Despite a police investigation and search, Bea’s body has never been recovered. We all hope that one day Scott and Sarah Walker will do the right thing and say where she is in the hope that dignity can be returned to her”

Sarah Walker, along with Scott Walker, was convicted of two counts of perverting the course of justice: These related to knowing she was dead but sending messages from her phone and providing false information to the police all to impede their investigation:

The prosecution team led by CPS East of England presented a timeline of messages that showed that Sarah Walker hacked into Bea’s social media accounts soon after her murder, including changing her passwords: Immediately after receiving the phone call from Scott Walker, Sarah found Bea’s mobile which she had left at home and hacked into her email and attempted to access her college and Instagram accounts. She claimed she did this to prevent the sexual abuse allegations becoming known. The prosecution argued that knowing her daughter was dead, she wanted to use the phone to create the false impression that Bea was alive but had run away.

They used the fake messages to explain they thought she was ok and felt no need to inform the police that Bea had disappeared: Using Bea’s phone Sarah Walker sent a message to her own phone supposedly from Bea apologising for making up the abuse allegations. She also sent a message to one of Bea’s friends saying she had runaway because she had lied. Sarah would later tell police that Scott Walker told her to send these false messages.

They were arrested six weeks later.

Suspicious behaviour

Bea was a regular user of a number of social media platforms and posted every day on Instagram. Her friends said it was really unusual for her not to post anything on social media and they had not heard from her after 17 July – the day before her murder. Some of her friends gave evidence confirming this was the last day they had contact with Bea.

Nicola Rice added: “Bea was not reported missing until three days after Scott Walker collected her; enough time for he and Sarah Walker to get their story together and to do what they needed to ensure that there was no link back to them.

“When she was reported missing Sarah Walker, in the presence of Scott Walker, continued to tell lies, hampering the police investigation. She pretended Bea chose not to return and lying that she had been in contact with her. The truth was that Bea did not have her mobile phone. Scott and Sarah Walker always had it and purported to be Bea until they disposed of it.

“The delay in reporting Bea missing and the lies they told everyone were nothing short of wicked and designed only to protect themselves without any thought, care or love for Bea or their wider family.”

They will both be sentenced on 10 September.

Timeline

16 July 2020 – Bea tells her mother that Scott Walker has been sexually abusing her for years. Sarah Walker does not believe her.

17 July – The Walkers’ and Bea argue about the allegations. Bea agrees to spend the night with Scott Walker’s parents. Scott Walker drops her off around 10.30pm.

18 July – Scott Walker goes back to his parents in the morning to collect Bea. They leave at 11.06am. This is the last time anyone other than Scott Walker sees Bea alive. She is thought to have been murdered in the next 90 minutes.

18-20 July – Scott and Sarah Walker start to lay a trial of false messages supposedly from Bea saying she has run away. They also travel to a lock up garage and fenland areas of Peterborough during this period.

21 July – Sarah first reports her daughter missing to the police who being to investigate.

10 September – Both are arrested. Scott Walker is later charged with Bea’s murder.

(NOTTINGHAM, U.K.) Crown Court Report: A sexual predator who groomed his 14-year-old victim after meeting her in a caravan park was only stopped after the victim told her teacher what had gone on #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.09: Almost a year later, the schoolgirl told a teacher that she had been abused and the police were informed.Brown, 26, of Lindfield Road, Broxtowe, was then arrested and charged.

#AceDailyNews reports that a sexual predator was sentenced on Monday for two years in prison (SUPENDED) for a further two years over the abuse of teenager at caravan park: Miles Brown met the teenager in August 2017 while she was on her school holidays, gaining her trust before engaging in sexual activity – despite her being just a child.

PC Emma McGregor, who led the investigation, said: “Brown groomed his young victim and engaged in sexual communication and activity with them to satisfy his own sexual perversion: I would like to thank the victim for coming forward and reporting this to us. This has been a lengthy investigation for the victim: We would encourage anyone who has been a victim of a sexual offence to please report no matter the length of time that has passed: It will be investigated and we will always look to work with the Crown Prosecution Service to bring offenders such as Brown to justice.”

(BOLTON, U.K.) Crown Court Report: A man from Wigan has been jailed after he sexually abused four children between 1991 and 2018 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.06: He was also sentenced to an indefinite sexual harm prevention order: The court heard how in September 2018 GMP received a report from social services that a girl under the age of thirteen had disclosed that Johnson had been sexually touching her………Shortly after this report, it was revealed that Johnson had abused two other girls between 1991 and 2004. This abuse started when both girls were under the age of ten and continued until they were in their mid-teens: Both girls were repeatedly sexually assaulted by Johnson. He also raped one of the girls on multiple occasions: The court also heard Johnson had sexually abused a fourth child – a male – in the 1990s. On one occasion this included Johnson forcing the boy to masturbate him: In September 2018 Johnson was arrested and subsequently charged.

#AceDailyNews reports Dennis Johnson (01/02/1963) of Manchester Road, Westhoughton has today (Monday 5 July) been sentenced at Bolton Crown Court to 22 years and six months imprisonment after being found guilty of 21 separate offences including rape, sexual assault, actual bodily harm and witness intimidation.

Detective Constable, Karen Dewhurst of GMP’s Wigan district, said: “The sexual exploitation of children is abhorrent and Johnson’s despicable abuse spanned years. I want to commend the bravery of all four of Johnson’s victims, their courage and support throughout this investigation and has been crucial in helping to secure a significant conviction today: Although today’s sentence will never reverse the abuse Johnson inflicted, I hope it does help in providing a sense of closure for his victims knowing that he will be behind bars for over 22 years: Child sexual exploitation takes place in many forms and GMP is committed to ensuring all those responsible for such grotesque abuse face the appropriate justice. If you have been the victim of such crimes or feel you know someone who is a victim then please get in touch with police. All reports will be treated with the respect and sensitivity they deserve and we will work closely with you to ensure justice prevails.”

Anyone with information should contact police on 101. Reports can also be made via our live web chat at www.gmp.police.uk or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

#bolton, #u-k-court

(WARWICK, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Three men have been jailed for running a huge three-floor cannabis farm in an abandoned nightclub in Coventry #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.05: National Crime Agency officers, supported by colleagues from West Midlands Police, raided the property on Trinity Street on 15 October 2020.

#AceDailyNews reports that three Albanian nationals have been jailed for running an ‘industrial’ million pound cannabis farm in Coventry nightclub and face deportation after their sentence has ended.

INVESTIGATION: They had to smash through several reinforced doors to access the interior, which they found contained around 1500 cannabis plants spread across the building’s three floors. NCA experts value the haul at over £1 million” As well as the plants officers recovered sophisticated planting, growing and irrigation equipment, valued at around £150,000: The electricity supply at the property had been bypassed, with the equipment inside directly and illegally connected to the commercial supply from the street outside…………..Three men were arrested, Albanian nationals Andi Cani (aged 24) and Adrian Lleshaj (29) and Vietnamese national Cao Van Vu (31)………..Cani and Lleshaj attempted to hide on the roof of the building as officers entered, but were captured with the assistance of West Midlands Police drone unit, who were working with the NCA……………In interviews with NCA investigators, all three men admitted having paid people smugglers to assist them in entering the UK illegally.

The trio pleaded guilty to producing a controlled drug and today (29 June) a judge at Warwick Crown Court sentenced Vu to 40 months in prison, Lleshaj to 35 months, and Cani to 28 months: All three will face deportation after serving their jail terms.

NCA Branch Commander Mick Pope said: These men were involved in producing cannabis on an industrial scale. It is certainly the largest and most sophisticated cannabis factory ever found by the NCA: They were responsible for maintaining and storing drugs and equipment worth over a million pounds, which shows the wider criminal network behind this operation clearly trusted them: The takedown of this facility will have had a huge impact on the wider organised crime group, depriving them of potentially millions of pounds in profit, which would have been used to fund further criminality and exploitation.

“Our investigation continues.”……….
