Organised drug dealer hid more than £130,000 in his Cambridge home

30 Jul 2021

An organised drug dealer who concealed hundreds of thousands of pounds in his Cambridge home has been jailed for more than five years.

Police pulled over Shpetim Uruci in his Mercedes in Stanley Court on 7 April after suspecting he was involved in organised drug crime.

The 41-year-old handed over a fake driving licence and gave a fake name but it was after wraps of crack cocaine hidden in a sock, £500 cash and a mobile phone were recovered from his vehicle that he was arrested.

Uruci was taken into custody where his real identity was revealed while officers searching his home in Rayson Way discovered further fake identity documents, drugs, mobile phones and more than £130,000 in cash which had been concealed in dining room chairs, boxes and a wash bag.

At Peterborough Crown Court yesterday (29 July) Uruci was sentenced to five and a half years in prison after previously pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of cocaine, acquiring/using criminal property, driving without a licence and insurance, possession of ID with intent and possession of false ID.

Detective Sergeant Dan Miller said: “Uruci was involved in organised drug crime making long distance trips throughout the UK in order to supply class A drugs.

“Organised crime is a blight on communities in Cambridge and as a force we are determined to make Cambridgeshire a hostile place for criminals, ensuring those involved lose out financially as well as losing their freedom.

“Members of the public can help us achieve this by reporting any suspicious activity to us.”
