By Press Release / 2013-09-07 15:12:45

A 44-year-old man has been jailed for 12 months years after being found guilty of attempting to smuggle approximately five kilos of cannabis into the UK.

The drugs had an estimated street value of £60,000.

Southampton Crown Court heard that on 6 May 2013 Border Force officers at Southampton International Airport stopped Nicholas GILES who had arrived on a flight from Malaga.

Before officers searched his baggage Giles admitted to having five kilos of “weed” in his suitcase.  The case was opened and the drugs could be seen wrapped in clear plastic.

Giles was arrested and charged and he pleaded guilty at Southampton Magistrates Court on 12 August and was sentenced in the Crown Court today.

Malcolm Bragg, from Border Force said:

"Our officers play an important role in protecting the public and work hard to make sure drugs are not smuggled into the country.

“Drug trafficking is a serious offence and those convicted will face prison sentences. The message to anyone tempted to get involved is clear.  We will catch you and you will pay with your liberty.”

Anyone with information about activity they suspect may be linked to smuggling should call the hotline on 0800 59 5000.
