Kumar was captured subsequent to meeting up with associate Abol Bosher in West Bromwich
A Birmingham drug supplier has been imprisoned after covert cops discovered 18 kilos of heroin with a street value estimation of £2 million.
Rajinder Kumar, who is 31 years old, of Uplands Road, Handsworth, was stung after a gathering with accomplice Abol Bosher in West Bromwich a year ago.
Bosher, 35, from Southall, London, met Kumar on Thomas Street on the night of November 14th.
The pair, however, were observed by Met Police Organised Crime Partnership (OCP) officers who were undercover at the time.
Bosher pulled up in a van and Kumar via car and the two were seen talking by an open van entryway for around ten minutes. A short time later, Bosher left in the van, however, it was not long before he was ceased by police a couple of minutes after the fact on the M6 motorway.
Endeavouring to avoid imprisonment, he at that point bounced out of the van and attempted to escape. Be that as it may, in the wake of understanding his lone break course was a 50-meter drop down to the railroad line, he surrendered and was captured.
A hunt of his van revealed 12 kilos of heroin worthy of around £1.2m. Further pursuit of his personal residence in Southall revealed £44,000 in hard cash.
Handsworth drug dealer Kumar, in the meantime, was captured before he left Thomas Street in West Bromwich. On looking through the vehicle officers found a further six kilos of heroin with an approximate value of £900,000.
Both were captured and accused of ownership of purpose to supply class A drugs. The two of them then pleaded guilty at a previous hearing.
Following the joint activity – driven by the National Crime Agency and OCP – the street drug suppliers were imprisoned for a total of 13 years and four months. Londoner Bosher was sentenced to eight years and Kumar for five years and four months.
Matt McMillan, OCP activities administrator, stated: “Drugs fuel crime and exploitation and these lengthy sentences reflect the severity of Bosher and Kumar’s offences. Organised crime groups rely on cash flow. It should act as a deterrent for those involved in the supply of drugs.”
“We will continue to pursue and bring to justice organised criminals working with partners and using all the tools available to us.”
