Kilburn man jailed for his role in plot to traffic �50million worth of cocaine
Daniel Persson-Negucic was part of five-strong gang plotting to supply 17 kilos of the class A drug
A Kilburn man has been jailed for his role in a plot to flood the streets with �50million worth of cocaine.
Daniel Persson-Negucic, of Mill Lane, was part of a five-strong gang involved in a national network to supply 17 kilos of the class A drug.
The 33-year-old was snared as part of an intelligence-led operation by officers from the Central Task Force involving crooks across the country.
When Persson-Neguci’s home was raided by officers they uncovered a suitcase containing
�500,340 belonging to another gang member Dejan Stankovic.
Last week at Woolwich Crown Court, Persson-Negucic was jailed for two years for possessing criminal proceeds.

Stankovic, 41, from Chiswick, west London, received 16 years for conspiracy to supply cocaine and three-and-a half years for possessing criminal proceeds. His sentences will run concurrently.
Douglas Batley, 50, from Sussex was jailed for 11 years for conspiracy to supply cocaine.
David Moore, 45, from Sussex, was jailed for nine years for conspiracy to supply cocaine and Nicholas Blackburn, 44, from Liverpool, was jailed for six years for conspiracy to supply cocaine.
All five pleaded guilty and will be subjected to a confiscation hearing at a later date.
Detective Inspector Colin Stephenson of the Central Task Force said: “The majority of the cocaine seized registered 99.9 per cent pure, the highest a UK laboratory has ever recorded.
“Many of the shootings and stabbings carried out in London are as a result of turf wars over the supply of drugs, the MPS Central Task Force has prevented a significantly large amount of drugs reaching those gangs and flooding our communities.”
