Callum Fay, 22, of Church Lane, Sawston, was arrested on June 28, 2012 after police received information from the UK Border Agency (UKBA) about a suspicious package from India. The package was intercepted in a sting operation leading to the capture of Fay and an end to his international self-styled drug smuggling enterprise located in Rural Cambridgeshire.
Fay peddled his illicit trade by disguising Class A drugs inside the innocent façade of Pokémon trading cards and computer games from his South Cambs bedroom. The investigation led by DC Tanya MUTCH uncovered the extent of the global market exploited by FAY, this was as far afield as Australia. The full postal distribution set up for an international client base was discovered leading to a £29,000 money trail launder through the use of a ‘bitcoin’ e-currency company.
Fay was arrested after failing to answer Bail in respect of his global drug dealing and was that again found in possession of further Class A and acquiring criminal property to the amount of £29,000
Having pleaded Guilty, on 1st May 2015, Fay was sentenced to Six Years imprisonment.
