Detective Constable Rebecca Goodey, from ERSOU, said: “Morina was arrested as part of an investigation into organised drugs supply. We established that he was a courier for an organised crime group, looking after quantities of cocaine and cash and passing it on to other individuals and leaving them in vehicles for collection by others.

“We’re pleased that he has now been jailed for his role in this drugs supply business, and we remain committed to uncovering those involved in such organised drugs criminality.

“Drugs have a significant detrimental impact on our communities, and are a key factor behind many other crimes.

“Hopefully this sentence will serve as a warning to all those involved in the drugs supply business that we will continue to target and disrupt their illegal activities and bring them to justice.”
