Rebecca Chin and Ali Adil Parvez, both 31, were also sentenced for supplying guns at Snaresbrook Crown Court earlier today.

The court heard how Chin and Parvez, both of Bedfordshire, were seen putting two bags in a car in East Ham on July 16, 2015, before police stopped them and discovered they contained cocaine and cannabis.

Chin, of Cookfield Close, Dunstable, was then arrested and more cocaine and cannabis were found at her home, alongside heroin, cash and drugs paraphernalia.

Parvez was later arrested and a search of his home – in Easingwold Gardens, Luton – resulted in more cash and cocaine being discovered.

The street value of the drugs was £2,476,800 for the heroin, £400,635 for the cannabis and £199,820 for the cocaine.

After the duo was arrested, detectives linked a car belonging to Parvez to the delivery of two firearms and also ammunition in Hackney on February 18, 2015.

It was later discovered that Chin had carried out the delivery under the direction of Parvez.

Parvez was jailed for 15 years for conspiracy to supply class A and B drugs and given an additional six years – to run consecutively – for firearms offences including possession of firearms, possession of ammunution and the sale/transfer of firearms and ammunition.

Chin was sentenced to 13 years in jail for conspiracy to supply class A and B drugs, with firearms charges lying on file.

Both Chin and Parvez pleaded guilty to the drugs and criminal property offences at Snaresbrook Crown Court on 11 December 2015. Parvez pleaded guilty to nine firearms offences on 2 June 2016.

Det Insp Steve Meechan, from the Trident and Area Crime Command – which undertook a special investigation into drugs supply in Newham – said: “The substantial custodial sentences handed down by the court today should act as a significant deterrent to those involved in criminal and gang related activity.

“These convictions were part of a complex operation by Trident officers to target organised criminal networks that are using firearms to enforce their drug trafficking activity.”

He added: “Trident has a zero tolerance approach to firearm enabled criminality, gang crime and drug supply.”

The seizure of the heroin was linked to a National Crime Agency investigation for which nine people were jailed for a total of 118 years.
