A drug dealer has been jailed for more than four years after he was found with £ 30,000 cocaine in the body of a taxi.
Perry Rickenberg, 23, was a passenger in & # 39; car when & # 39; t it was stopped at & # 39; e A13, in Rainham, Essex, on Tuesday, September 2 last year.
When the car was overturned, officers said Rickenberg threw an article into a luggage area, which was recorded on video warning.
The driver and Rickenberg, of Poplar, east London, were detained while a search of the car was conducted.
When officers searched the suitcase, they found a plastic bag containing one kilogram of cocaine, with a street value of about £ 30,000.
Both men were taken to a North London police station and a search warrant was authorized for Rickenberg & # 39; s East London address.
Officials found further amounts of Class A drugs, paraphernalia for drugs, including scales, two expensive watches, including a Rolex, £ 100,000 in cash and CS spray.
The driver of the & # 39; private tenant was released under investigation and Rickenberg was charged and arrested on Thursday, September 4 with possession with intent to deliver Class A drugs and money laundering.
After a search of Rickenberg's home in east London, a large stash of cash was found by police
A banned weapons charge was later added to the charge, once it was investigated by the lab.
He appeared at Wood Green Crown Court on Monday, April 27, and was sentenced to four years and eight months & # 39; imprisonment for possession with intent to deliver Class A drugs.
The 23-year-old was also convicted of possession of a class B drug (cannabis) with intent to deliver, felony theft and possession of a prohibited weapon (CS spray).
All sentences must run at the same time, which means he will serve a total of four years and eight months.
Drug paraphernalia was also at the property, and Rickenberg has now been jailed
Detective Inspector Glenn Butler, of specialist crime, said: & # 39; Sentenced to more than four years in & # 39; e prison is an excellent result and shows just how serious drug crimes are taken by the courts.
& # 39; Although this arrest was made before the Coronavirus hit, my team and all others on the Met are still embarking on proactive, intelligence-led jobs to arrest those involved in crime and drug supply.
& # 39; The public can be sure it is still business for us and criminals will be detained for violating & # 39; e wet. & # 39;
