Wolverhampton wholesaler packed the walls in his house with cash: A 36-year-old man who acted as a drugs wholesaler to dealers in the West Midlands has been jailed for 13 years, following an investigation by the joint National Crime Agency (NCA) and Met Police Organised Crime Partnership (OCP).

Daljinder Bassi used his house on Stafford Road in Wolverhampton to cut, package and store large quantities of heroin and cocaine before selling it on to dealers in the West Midlands.

OCP officers, with support from West Midlands police, arrested him in October 2017 as he drove along the M6 with three kilos of heroin in his car.

Officers searching his home found cash and class A drugs in powder, rock and block form concealed in various hiding places, including under the floorboards, beneath the insulation in the loft and within the wall cavities.

The cash hidden in the walls was only accessible from the loft using a home-made pulley system.

Officers seized £737,000 in cash and a further 22kg of heroin, cocaine and mixing agents. The total drugs recovered would have had a total estimated street value of £2.5 million.
