Cocaine in frozen pizza

A truck driver has been jailed after smuggling cocaine worth £5m into the UK hidden in frozen pizzas. Vladan Petrovic was arrested at a warehouse in Heywood, Manchester. He drove from Italy via Dover with his 50kg (110lb) cocaine haul. The 40-year-old Serbian was jailed for 14 years after being convicted of importation and possession with intent to supply. His refrigerated HGV trailer was legitimately loaded with a shipment of frozen pizzas in Italy. The cocaine was then later loaded at an unknown location.
