R v Darboe
Oliver King prosecuted a 37-year-old barber from Chester, who was convicted of being part of a conspiracy to import over 8kg of cannabis into the UK with a potential street value of over £50,000. The jury found that Jarry Darboe entered an agreement with another man from Birmingham to use Darboe’s rented flat in Chester to receive packages of cannabis from South Africa and Uganda. There was evidence on Darboe’s phone that, as well as running a successful barber shop on Brook Street, he was supplying cannabis to users. He was remanded in custody to be sentenced in May.
