UK: Men tried to smuggle $340,000 worth of cocaine in baked beans tins

Two men have been jailed for attempting to smuggle $341,875 (£250,000) worth of cocaine in baked beans and condensed coconut milk tins.

Daniel Kelly and Steven Gilhooly were sentenced to a total of 15 years in prison at Snaresbrook Crown Court, London, on January 12, according to London’s Metropolitan Police.
Kelly and Gilhooly, both aged 43, sent two parcels described as tinned goods from St. Lucia, in the Caribbean, to southeast London in December 2018.
However, subsequent forensic inspection found that the parcels contained 2.742 kg of cocaine.
The men were able to reseal the cans using a machine can sealer and blank tin lids they had bought earlier, alongside numerous items that would later be sold in St. Lucia, according to a further joint investigation by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Metropolitan Police.
