FOUR men were jailed for a total of nearly 40 years for their roles in a £1 million cocaine haul which saw a loaded MAC-10 sub machine recovered from a child's bedroom.

Croydon Crown Court heard that Abrahim Abdul Wahid, 24, of Battery Road, Thamesmead, posed as a courier employee to pick up a kilo of cocaine sent to a pet store in Herne Hill on August 8, 2009.

Wahid pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply cocaine and was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison last Friday.

Anthony Reid, a fashion designer, 33, of Princess Park Manor, Royal Drive, Arnos Grove, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply cocaine and was sentenced to five years in prison.

He also pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and was sentenced to seven years. Sentences are to run consecutively.

Salesperson Clive Gideon, 25, of Broadview Road, Streatham, was found not guilty at trial of conspiracy to supply cocaine.

The court heard how Reid stashed a fully-loaded MAC-10 sub-machine gun in a wardrobe in a room where his children regularly slept.

Police discovered that Wahid was once employed by a courier company and on leaving the organisation retained his ID and uniform.
