Three men, who have been linked to a haul of cocaine and thousands of pounds in cash, have been jailed for a total of 21 years, reports the Metropolitan Police. 

The men were apprehended by detectives from the Central Task Force after £1.3 million worth of cocaine was recovered from an address in west London and two vehicles used by the defendants.

Following a further search of the property in Grove Park Gardens, Hounslow, £500,000 was discovered hidden in various locations.

Naim Haziri, 32; Harvey O’Neill, 27; and Francis Butler, 48, were sentenced on Friday 19th August at Kingston Crown Court after pleading guilty to various offences.

Detectives carried out a search warrant at the premises, where they found a kilo of cocaine concealed within four socks hidden in a plastic bag. Within a bed base in one of the bedrooms officers recovered four plastic bags containing cash amounting to around £200,000. Inside a safe, hidden within a concealed comportment of a wardrobe, a further £300,000 was seized.

The occupier of the house, Francis Butler, told officers he was looking after the stash of cash and drugs on behalf of an unnamed individual. He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Further inquiries identified a lock-up premises linked to O’Neill located in a remote country lane in the High Wycombe area. Inside officers discovered a safe containing items used for wrapping drugs and a cocaine press.

Two vehicles used by this network were subsequently searched and a further 2 kilos of cocaine recovered. The vehicles had secret compartments where the drugs were concealed.

    Rather short sentences. If I was them I would give it another go when I got out especially Butler. What else are you going to do at the age of 53 and a half?
