A man who masterminded a Bedfordshire drug deal from his prison cell will be spending even longer behind bars.
Domenico Masciopinto was serving a 14-year sentence when he orchestrated the £30,000 cocaine deal, which spanned from Luton to Bedford.
He co-ordinated the deal from inside by phoning his associates, Daniel Digiacomo, 27, of Farrer Street, Kempston, and Jason West, 35, of Malthouse Green, Luton.
Digiacomo was arrested moments after officers witnessed the drug deal in a supermarket car park. Officers recovered nearly a kilo of cocaine and £29,435 in cash from both parties involved.
West was identified as the supplier of the cocaine but evaded police capture for four months.
Detectives eventually found him living in a £99-a-night luxury serviced apartment in Milton Keynes. Among the items found in the flat included around £5,000 in £50 notes and a diamond encrusted Rolex.
Masciopinto, Digiacomo and West all admitted conspiracy to supply cocaine.
Masciopinto received a seven-year prison sentence, which will be added onto his existing term.
West received a sentence of six years and eight months, while Digiacomo was sentenced to six years.
Two others were also sentenced at Luton Crown Court for their roles in the criminal operation.
Kelly Imlay, 30, of Bunting Road, Luton, admitted conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
She met with West in Luton on the day of the offence, 28 September 2017, and was handed a package. She then made her way to the car park in Lurke Street, Bedford.
Imlay received a sentence of two years, suspended for two years. She will have to complete 250 hours of community service and wear an electronic tag for 12 months.
Bobbie Keet, 25, of St Peters Road, Bedford, Digiacomo's partner, was found guilty at trial of possessing criminal property and money laundering offences under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
Keet was found by officers loading her car with expensive items from her and Digiacomo's flat a few hours after the initial arrests.
She sought to remove nearly £2,500 in cash, a number of fake Rolexes and three pairs of Louis Vuitton shoes.
She received a 12-month community order and will undertake 100 hours of unpaid work.
