Golders Green drug dealer smuggled cocaine in gold shirt and shorts
A Golders Green drug dealer has been jailed for smuggling cocaine from Argentina in two pairs of shorts and a gold shirt.
Ricardo Campbell, 31, of Golders Green Crescent, was caught with 357 grammes of cocaine hidden in clothing.
The package was intercepted by the UK Border agency at a Parcel Force depot in Coventry in February 2011.
Campbell and his customer Alex Herman, 30, were caught five days later when it was delivered by an undercover police officer to Herman’s home in Friern Barnet Road, Friern Barnet, Southwark Crown Court heard.
Campbell had been supplying Herman’s “voracious appetite for Class A drugs” for three years, the court heard.
