Mark Lambie has been sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment
Mark Lambie was sentenced yesterday after he admitted to supplying Class A drugs.
A second man, Ben Hamill, was jailed for four-and-a-half years for the same offence.
Police observed Lambie, Hamill, and another man, Jamal Primus, meet up at a pub in Mortlake in January.
Hamill was seen to give Lambie, 48, of Whalebone Grove, a white bag.
All three then drove off separately but police stopped Lambie and Primus a short while later.
Officers recovered approximately two kilograms of cocaine from their vehicles and both men were arrested.
Hamill, 43, was arrested four days later at his home address, in Buckingham Road, Richmond-upon-Thames.
A search of his property revealed 15 sets of packaging containing cocaine residue, identical to the packaging found wrapped around the cocaine seized from Lambie and Primus.
Detective Inspector Pete McDonald, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “This successful operation has seen a significant amount of cocaine removed from the drugs market. Thanks to the dedication of my team, these gang members have been removed from the streets of London and will now serve lengthy sentences.
“Drugs destroy lives and fuel crime and violence in our communities. We will not stop in our efforts to robustly target this kind of criminality and I hope the sentencing serves as a stark reminder to those involved in drugs offences.”
Primus, 38, of Felixstowe Road, Tottenham, was found guilty of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs. He will be sentenced on Tuesday, 1 October.Tags: Chadwell Heath, Barking and Dagenham
