Lukasz Geborys from Finchley jailed after police uncover £8million worth of cocaine and heroin
A man from Finchley has been jailed for planning to help distribute £8million worth of cocaine and heroin.
Lukasz Geborys, a Polish national, was sentenced to 14 years in prison after a trial at Kingston Crown Court.
The 31-year-old was sentenced on Friday, August 23 alongside Gent Gasa, a 30-year-old Albanian national living in Wembley, who was jailed for 20 years, and Carl Butler, 28, of Dagenham, who was jailed for 12 years.
The trio were investigated by the Metropolitan Police Service's Central Task Force over a number of months last year.
They were arrested between November, 2012 and January, 2013 and charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs following the seizure of 18kg of high purity cocaine and 159g of heroin.
During the investigation, police also discovered approximately £40,000 in cash and various items of drug paraphernalia including weighing scales, a Stanley knife and cling film.
Geborys and Butler pleaded guilty to their offence at an early stage in legal proceedings, but Gasa elected to stand trial and was subsequently convicted at Kingston Crown Court on July 23.
Detective Inspector Nick Blackburn, of 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.
"Those drugs would have been distributed throughout the streets of London, generating further criminality and fuelling gang activity."
