TWO gangsters have been jailed after they were caught smuggling £480,000 worth of cocaine inside sausage boxes.
Cops had Eyaldas Stanionis, 52, and Arunas Zemaitis, 49, bang to rights as they did a deal involving the boxes at an M25 service station.
Lorry driver Zemaitis had earlier arrived from France with a bag for Stanionis.
Kent officers then followed Stanionis for 30 miles to a car park in Chatham, where they found three food boxes with Dutch sausage branding — each containing a kilo block of cocaine.
Amphetamines, cannabis and three mobile phones were also found at Stanionis’s home in Rye, East Sussex.
Zemaitis was nicked a week later trying to board a ferry in Dover.
