Two Brothers Jailed for Cocaine Dealing

Two brothers have been sentenced to prison for their involvement in a large-scale cocaine operation. The drug bust occurred after officers intercepted a vehicle at a motorway service station, unearthing several kilos of the illicit substance.

On June 1 last year, officers stopped a Toyota C-HR being driven by Klevis Lika at Woodall Services, located on the M1 near Sheffield. What they discovered inside the vehicle was staggering: 22 kilos of cocaine, with an estimated street value of £660,000.

The investigation didn’t end there. A subsequent search of Lika’s home address revealed even more damning evidence. Alongside additional drugs, authorities found a substantial amount of cash. It was clear that this operation was far-reaching and well-organised.

Both brothers faced justice in Sheffield Crown Court on February 23. Klevis Lika, aged 28, had previously pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply a Class A controlled drug. He received a 13-and-a-half-year sentence for his role in the drug trade.

His younger brother, Florin Lika, aged 23, also pleaded guilty to the same charge. He was handed a 9-year prison term for his involvement.

Speaking outside the court, Detective Chief Inspector Al Burns emphasised the importance of tackling organised crime. He stated, “This was a significant disruption of Class A drugs which were destined to be supplied in our communities. We welcome the sentences handed out today and are pleased that these two men have been put behind bars. Officers from the YHROCU will continue to target the organised criminals whose actions harm the communities of Yorkshire and the Humber.”
