Woman convicted and jailed for part in large drug supply conspiracy 

A woman has been convicted and jailed for her part in a large-scale drug supply conspiracy, following an investigation by the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU). 

Mandeep Kaur of Pocklington Close, London was found guilty by a majority jury of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and a unanimous jury of conspiracy to possess criminal property at Aylesbury Crown Court, sitting at Amersham, following a two-week trial. 

Yesterday (15/5) she was also sentenced to a total of four years and eight months’ imprisonment. 

The 41-year-old was found guilty in relation to her activities as a money and drugs courier for a Buckinghamshire-based organised crime group (OCG). She was found to have undertaken a number journeys for a criminal group who were responsible for supplying cocaine across the country.  

During the trial, she was found to have delivered a kilo of cocaine on 13 June 2020, she was arrested three days later and was in possession of a bag containing £50,000 in cash. 

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Dale Lester of SEROCU, said: “Kaur’s involvement in the OCG in this case was significant. She willingly delivered and collected criminal money under instruction from a senior member of the group. On one occasion, she went one step further and moved a kilo of cocaine – acts she decided to do of her own free will for financial gain.  

“This conviction is a demonstration of SEROCU’s ongoing commitment in tackling and dismantling organised crime across the South East and further afield.”
