Drug 'jackpot' trio jailed at Leicester Crown Court
Three men "who thought they had hit the jackpot" when they stole £1 million worth of cocaine and £100,000 cash in a burglary on a drug dealer's flat have been sent to jail.
Leicester Crown Court heard that they were so surprised at the amount they had got that one of the gang kissed an accomplice on the cheek as they drove away.
But they were being watched by police who followed their van and arrested them just 24 minutes after they grabbed the drugs and money.
Leicester men Luca Bullock (24), of Kingsway, off Narborough Road, Jamie Garland (36) of Southey Close, Belgrave and Mark Wimperiss (39) of Caldecote Road, Braunstone were each jailed for six years after pleading guilty to possessing nearly 4kg of high-purity cocaine with intent to supply and burglary.
