A drug dealer from Harrow who liked to take pose for photos alongside his winnings has been jailed, along with two other members of his crime ring.
Olsi Beheluli, 24, was arrested in October after a National Crime Agency operation which saw cocaine and heroin with a likely street value of over £4m seized from his associates, Besim Topalli and Azem Proshka.
Bundles of pound and euro notes to a value of around £100,000 were also recovered.
National Crime Agency branch commander Oliver Higgins said: “Beheluli seemed to enjoy the high life and gambling with the money he made from drug dealing, but in the end his luck run out.
“These men were involved in supplying significant quantities of high-purity class A drugs, as demonstrated by the value of the cash, cocaine and heroin we have seized from them.”
At their 'stash house' in Harp Island Close, Neasden, investigators found counterfeit identity documents, small amounts of cash and drugs along with scales and other equipment associated with drug dealing.
On Beheluli's phone, officers found a picture of him surrounded by piles of cash, estimated to be around £250,000.
Officers also found betting slips showing recent bets with stakes worth £12,000 at the bookies. His student bank account contained £24,000, which Beheluli claimed was winnings from gambling on the World Cup.
Beheluli was found guilty of conspiring to supply class A drugs and on Thursday (April 2) was sentenced to 11 years in prison, while Albanian nationals Proshka and Topalli were sentenced to 10 years.
Both nationals had admitted conspiring to supply drugs, money laundering and possessing false ID documents. They will face deportation at the end of their sentences.
