A Wembley man has been jailed for his role in a plot to flood the streets of London with cocaine and heroin worth more than £8million.
Gent Gasa, an Albanian national, has been sentenced to 20 years after he was snared through an intelligence-led operation by the Met’s Central Task Force.
Kingston Crown Court heard the 30-year-old, Lukasz Geborys, 31, from Finchley and Carl Butler , 28, from Dagenham, were linked to a haul of cocaine and heroin recovered by police in a number of locations, including the boot of Butler’s car.
Officers also seized approximately £40,000 in cash and various items of drug paraphernalia including weighing scales, a Stanley knife and cling film.
Geborys and Butler admitted conspiracy to supply Class A drugs at an early stage in legal proceedings, but Gasa elected to stand trial and was subsequently convicted at Kingston Crown Court last month.

DI Nick Blackburn, Central Task Force, said: “This excellent result shows our commitment to tackling organised crime in London and to dismantling the networks behind such activity. I am pleased with the sentences handed down as they reflect the level at which the network was operating.

“The street value of the drugs seized was £8.4 million. Those drugs would have been distributed throughout the streets of London, generating further criminality and fuelling gang activity.”
