A man has been jailed for four years and eight months after 260 bags of cannabis were intercepted at East Midlands Airport.

The haul, with a street value of up to £1m, was discovered by Border Force last November.

The delivery had been described as ‘machinery for dry cleaning’ and was sent from Los Angeles, addressed to a property in Sherwood, Nottinghamshire.

Curtis Campbell was arrested four days later at the property.

He was charged with being concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of a Class B drug, supplying of a Class B drug and producing a Class B drug.

The charges cover the seizure of another parcel containing 530g of cannabis, with a potential street value of up to £4,500, at Coventry International Hub on 2 May 2022.

He pleaded guilty to all the offences at Nottingham Crown Court.
