Jail for County Lines drugs courier arrested in Marlborough

Swindon Crown CourtSwindon Crown CourtAn Albanian who was caught in Marlborough ferrying hundreds of pounds worth of high purity cocaine for a county lines operation has been jailed for 26 months.

Marjus Lika was behind the wheel of an orange Peugeot when police, acting on intelligence, moved in and stopped it on Chopping Knife Lane.

When they searched the vehicle they not only found 30 wraps of super storng cocaine but he was also using a forged Romanian driving licence.

And it was the discovered the 26-year-old had used the fake identity document to hire the car from a London branch of Europcar.

Colin Meeke, prosecuting, told Swindon Crown Court how on Thursday March 21 police in Salisbury received information about a certain vehicle.

It was spotted in Marlborough later that day and when officers stopped it and went to search the driver he produced a package containing a 30 further snap seal bags.

Mr Meeke said it turned out to be 14.42g of cocaine at more than 80 per cent purity and with a street value of around £1,500.

The licence was seized and sent to the DVLA where an expert found it was a ‘very good, but not perfect,’ forgery of a Romanian licence.

It is believed that the drugs were being transferred in the purer form ready to be cut and bagged into smaller street deals.

Lika, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to supply, simple possession of cannabis, fraud and having a false documents with intent.

Ronan McCann, defending, said “This is simply an individual moving from a small town in Albania trying to better his life and send money home to is family.

“He was moving from cash in hand role to cash in hand role working not just as a skilled labourer but also a kitchen hand.”

He said that he was simply couriering the drugs for those higher up the chain and his imprisonment means he will not now be able to send money home to his family.

Jailing him Judge Jason Taylor QC said “Because you live in London and you were stopped in Marlborough I am satisfied to the criminal standard that these drugs were part of a county lines operation.

“You however have pleaded guilty on a basis which is accepted, namely that you were a courier, the ID and bank card were provided to you and there were no incriminating phone messages or money found on you.”
