The company director and cash and carry employee were jailed for more than 11 years for laundering £ 25 million.

Dhillon from Grove Park Road, Mottingham and Bharj from Billet Road, Little Heath in Redbridge, along with Avtar Singh Mann from High Silver, Loughton, were found guilty of conspiracy to convert criminal property following a lawsuit in Southwark Crown Court.

The court heard Mann, 50, and employee Bharj, 54, moved millions through a series of shell companies set up to launder cash, which HMRC believes came from the sale of booze where the alcohol tax was not paid.

IP addresses used to control the shell companies’ bank accounts were tracked to a warehouse, Mann drove in River Road, Barking and the homes of Bharj and Dhillon, 40.

Evidence of the scam, including account books and banknotes, was found in Bharj’s home and a warehouse run by Dhillon in Thames Road, Barking, where £ 300,000 was also discovered.

More than £ 198,000 and € 26,000 were found in Mann’s home and £ 329,000 at Dhillon’s.

At Southwark Crown Court on October 6, Bharj was sentenced to seven years, three months and banned from being corporate director for 10 years.

Dhillon was sentenced to four years in prison and banned from being director for three years.

The Dagenham man who stole a van, crashed and then hit a police officer in the head was jailed for eight months.

Warren, 31, of Manor Road, used a skeleton ignition key to steal a Ford Transit from a driveway in Stanwell, Surrey on July 4th.

The van was spotted by police nearby and Warren was trying to escape as an officer approached it.

Warren hit the officer in the head while he was handcuffed and injured the officer’s lip.

When he was taken into custody, Warren peed in the police car, which had to be thoroughly cleaned and taken out of service.

He was sentenced to eight months in prison for aggravated possession of vehicles; five months for assault by an emergency worker and one month for criminal damage, where the sentences must be served simultaneously.

Warren, who was also disqualified from driving for two years, pleaded guilty to the offenses at Harrow Crown Court on Wednesday, October 13th.
