Camberwell bust revealed stash of Class A drugs

6731Renato Pieterse was jailed for four years after Camberwell drugs bust

A drug smuggler has been jailed for four years after 1.6kg of crystal meth was found at an address in Camberwell.

On June 30, officers from Southwark’s Drugs and Firearms Team executed an intelligence-led bust on the Elmington Estate and discovered the drugs, with an approximate street value of £275,000, hidden in a parcel disguised as packets of cigarettes.

Renato Pieterse, 32, was arrested at the scene and later pleaded guilty to the importation of Class A drugs with the intent to evade a prohibition.

The salesman, who lives at Robert Lowe Close in New Cross, was jailed for four years at Woolwich Crown Court on November 9 and ordered to pay £1,000 court costs.
