Ex-soldiers jailed for arms smuggling
Four former soldiers who tried to smuggle guns, ammunition and drugs into the country have been jailed.
The servicemen conspired with civilian contact Ramone Marshallek in London to import the criminal goods in January last year. They were sentenced to a total of 50 years in prison after a six-week trial at Woolwich Crown Court.
Lance Laurent, 26, who was a trooper with the Queen's Royal Hussars, Duran Wright, 28, a Lance Corporal with the Royal Logistic Corps, Trave Dyce, 22, a former trooper in the Queen's Royal Hussars and Lemar Loveless, 26, who was arrested six days after he quit the Queen's Royal Hussars, were all sentenced along with Marshallek, 25, at Woolwich Crown Court.
The men were caught with five handguns and 493 grams of cocaine when Dryce got off the Euro Shuttle train at Dover in January.
