09 September 2018

Polish nationals Lukasz Kur (DOB 02/08/87), Rafal Anyszek (DOB 25/09/86) were intercepted at Dover Eastern Docks freight controls at 6am on Friday morning by Border Force officers and referred to the NCA for investigation. A search of the HGV and trailer revealed  20 handguns, 1,000 rounds of ammunition and a variety of class A drugs concealed within the stated cargo of photocopier paper. The shipment was listed for delivery to an address in Cardiff, however enquiries revealed it was not expected at the delivery address and none of the load was legitimate.
 
In addition to the firearms and ammunition, the search of the vehicle’s load revealed approximately 300Kg methamphetamine, 50Kg ketamine, 50Kg cocaine, and 10kg heroin. The drugs have a combine street value of approximate £7.5million.
 
Kathryn Philpott, Senior Investigating Officer for the NCA, said: “This is a substantial seizure of firearms and ammunition which would pose a significant risk to life once in the hands of criminals in the UK. Criminal gangs use handguns to bring fear and violence to our streets; we are committed doing all we can to prevent these items getting into the UK to help keep the public safe.”
 
Both men, who are resident in Poland, were charged on Saturday night and remanded in custody to appear at Margate Magistrates Court on Monday morning.
