Man found guilty following Suffolk's largest drugs haul

A man has been found guilty of conspiracy to supply Class A controlled drugs after the discovery of £30m of cocaine.

The cocaine had a street value of £34m and was Suffolk's largest seizure of Class A drugs.

Frederick Colverson, 56, Galsworthy Avenue, London was found guilty at Ipswich Crown Court.

He will be sentenced on 7th August, together with Terance Smith, 57, a Company Director from Ethelreda Drive, Thetford who pleaded guilty to the same charge at an earlier hearing.

They were arrested following months of intelligence gathering relating to smuggling cocaine through Felixstowe Docks

The discovery of £34m worth of cocaine will have a significant impact and disruption on drug activity and criminality taking place within Suffolk and wider areas of the country.
