Brothers Jailed after £660,000 of Cocaine Found in M1 Services Stop

Two brothers have been jailed for their roles in dealing cocaine after several kilos of the drugs were found in a car stopped at motorway services.

Officers stopped a Toyota C-HR being driven by Klevis Lika at Woodall Services, on the M1 near Sheffield, on 1 June this year.

A search of the vehicle, led to the discovery of 22 kilos of cocaine, valued at approximately £660,000.

A subsequent search of Lika’s home address found more drugs and a substantial amount of cash. Lika’s brother, Florin Lika, was arrested and also charged.

Appearing before Sheffield Crown Court for sentence today (23 February), Klevis Lika, aged 28, of Wickham Road, Croydon, who previously pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply a Class A controlled drug, was jailed for 13 and a half years.

Florin Lika, aged 23, of Wickham Road, Croydon, also pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply a Class A controlled drug, and was jailed for 9 years.

The investigation was conducted by the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit (YHROCU).

Speaking outside court, Detective Chief Inspector Al Burns of the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit said: “This was a significant disruption of Class A drugs which were destined to be supplied in our communities.

“We welcome the sentences handed out today and are pleased that these two men have been put behind bars.

“Officers from the YHROCU will continue to target the organised criminals whose actions harm to the communities of Yorkshire and the Humber.”
