Three men in Richmond have been jailed after 32kg of cocaine worth £3 million was discovered at a flat in Richmond.

Eridon Luca, 21, Uesti Cenaj, 24, and Eduard Luca, 35, all of Sheen Court Road, were sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court on December 21.

All three pleaded guilty on February 22 to possession with intent to supply of cocaine and cannabis and possession of criminal property, namely £44,000 in cash.

Cenaj also pleaded guilty to possession of a false ID document.

Eridon Luca will serve eight years and three months in prison, while Cenaj was sentenced to six years and three months' imprisonment.

Eduard Luca received a prison sentence of 10-and-a-half years in prison

Police officers executed a drugs search warrant at an address on Sheen Court Road in January.

Luca and Cenaj jumped out of the first floor and were detained by officers who were waiting outside.

Inside the address, officers found Luca with a person called Annie Brayne, 36, of Laburnum Road in Mitcham, who was given 6 months' imprisonment for possessing a Class A drug.

Officers seized 21kg of cocaine in a suitcase and 11kg of cocaine in a second bag, with a combined street value of more than £3 million.

A large amount of money (£44,120 in cash) was also discovered.

Detective Superintendent Neil Ballard, said: "This was a significant seizure of Class A drugs.

“There is a link between serious acquisitive and violent crime, which is often associated with the supply of drugs, and the tackling of the supply of cocaine on this large scale has undoubtedly prevented these drugs from impacting negatively on the communities of London in particular the South West BCU.

"These sentences should stand as a deterrent to others. The Met will continue to target those involved in Serious and Organised Crime."
