A man has jailed for five years for attempting to smuggle ecstasy through Dover's Eastern Docks.
Fabien Decodts, aged, 38 from Tower Hamlets, London admitted attempting to smuggle approximately 14 kilos of the drug.
The court heard that Border Force officers at Dover’s Eastern Docks stopped a British–registered Mini driven by Decodts on 18 November 2012 after he arrived on a ferry from Calais.
After questioning Decodts officers searched the car and found eight packages hidden in the rear quarter panels.
Four of the packages contained green tablets and the other four a brown crystal substance both of which tested positive to a field test for MDMA.
Decodts was arrested and charged with the importation of the class A drug.
