UK: Four convicted in cannabis product supply plot

BBC

A package of cannabis products worth £60,000 intercepted at Stansted Airport led to four people being convicted for their roles in a drug supply plot.

Police said the parcel was sent from Los Angeles, USA, in January 2022 but never reached its destination in Collingham, Nottinghamshire.

Instead, officers arrived at an address in Lilac Close in Newark in March 2022 to carry out a raid and found large amounts of cannabis, edibles, and oil infused with the class B drug, all hidden in a wardrobe.

The property was the home of Taylor Kennedy, who on Wednesday was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court after earlier pleading guilty to conspiracy to supply a Class B drug.

The 27-year-old was jailed for three years and nine months, and will be subject to a Proceeds of Crime Act hearing to recover his illegally obtained income.

Nottinghamshire Police say analysis of Kennedy’s bank accounts revealed he was making large amounts that were unaccounted for.
