UK: Border Force officer jailed for supplying MDMA


A Border Force officer from Kent who was caught selling MDMA has been jailed.

Gareth Davies, of Cleaves Road in Ashford, was a field intelligence officer in Folkestone when he was meeting contacts to arrange selling Class A drugs, the National Crime Agency (NCA) said.

He was sentenced for supplying Class A drugs to five years and 11 months’ imprisonment at Maidstone Crown Court on Thursday.

Dave Rock, from the NCA’s anti-corruption unit, said: “Davies thought he was beyond the reach of the law, willingly disclosing information that revealed his criminality.”

The 44-year-old was put under surveillance in late 2019 after information was passed to the NCA that he might have been involved in supplying drugs, it said.

In January 2020, Davies gave four pills to a contact for a taster and promised there were 5,000 more to come, according to the NCA.

After the pills were handed over, Davies was arrested.

Weapons such as a machete, Rambo knife and knuckle-dusters were found by officers at his home and in his car, which he should have returned when he left the Prison Service, the NCA added.
