Trio operated drug factory in Saltdean
Two men and a woman from Brighton had £63,000 of drugs in their illegal factory in Saltdean.
Police found enough MDMA to make 6,663 ecstasy pills, 55g of high purity cocaine, more than 2kg of ketamin, a pill making machine and more than £41,000 in cash in raids in September 2012.
After raiding the address in Bannings Vale, Saltdean police arrested self-employed Paul Bulford, 44, of Bannings Vale, disc-jockey Gavin McCall, 44, of Abinger Road, Woodingdean and 39-year-old Kerry Worms of Bannings Vale.
More than 2kg of Ketamine and 5kg of drug adulterants were also found in a vehicle in Saltdean linked to Bulford.
The total estimated potential street value of the recovered drugs was £63,612.
All three were sentenced at Brighton Crown Court yesterday (March 8).
Bulford had previously pleaded guilty to production of MDMA, possession of cocaine with intent to supply, possession of Diazepam, possession of Ketamine, and money laundering of £32,000. He was sentenced to a total of nine years imprisonment.
McCall had pleaded guilty to production of MDMA, and was sentenced to eight years imprisonment.
Worms had pleaded guilty to allowing premises to be used for the production of MDMA and was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment suspended for two years and 200 hours of unpaid work.
Detective Inspector Till Sanderson said; "We continue to actively target those involved in the drugs trade, particularly those profiting from it.
"We will now be seeking a court order under the Proceeds of Crime Act to confiscate the criminal proceeds and profits of Bulford and McCall.
"We also remind people tempted to buy illicit powders and pills that these substances are not subject to any form of quality control and are mixed with all manner of adulterants - some of which can have serious adverse, or even fatal, side effects.
"Taking them is tantamount to trusting a person you don't know to gamble with your health."
