CPS statement following sentencing of two men who hid cocaine in bags of tropical fish

PUBLISHED February 24, 2012

Senior lawyer in the CPS Organised Crime Division, Jacqueline Finn, said: ?This case demonstrates the extraordinary and innovative lengths that drug dealers will go to so they can ply their evil trade. Olaf Urlik and Norbert Jarzabek thought that by having diluted cocaine hidden in bags of fish they would escape detection and net huge profits but they did not realise their plot had been uncovered. The joint investigation by SOCA, UKBA and Nottinghamshire Police provided the Crown Prosecution Service with detailed evidence against the two men. We worked closely with agencies to build a strong case and when confronted with the evidence against them, Urlik and Jarzabek both pleaded guilty.?
