Met Police PC lived millionaire’s life with cocaine baron husband

Met Police PC lived millionaire’s life with cocaine baron husband

Julian Agalliu, 47, sold drugs packaged with the Hublot brand through EncroChat

The husband of a Met Police officer who bankrolled their millionaire lifestyle with the profits of a cocaine and cannabis supply ring, is facing years in prison.

Julian Agalliu, 47, sold drugs packaged with the luxury Hublot brand through the notorious EncroChat communication system, and splashed out on a £70,000 Audi, designer clothes, and homes in the upmarket Hadley Wood enclave of Barnet, north London.

When he was caught, there was a bowl of cocaine next to the bed Agalliu shared with his wife, PC Rasvinder Agalliu.

The officer, a former beauty queen, was sacked by the Met after a discplinary tribunal rejected her claim to have known nothing about her husband’s drugs empire.

The PC of 15 years claimed she thought his money came from working as a chef to professional footballers, and she tried to paint him as “controlling”.

But the tribunal concluded: “Mr Agalliu in our view was not hiding his drug use within the home. There were drugs and the means to supply them clearly evident in her home and we are satisfied she knew they were there.”

The full evidence from the misconduct hearing can be reported after Agalliu was convicted by a jury of supplying class A and class B, and was remanded in custody until sentencing in February next year.


Rasvinder Agalliu was a PC in the Metropolitan Police

The trial at Woolwich crown court heard how Agalliu boasted to associates about being married to a Met Police officer and was even asked to seek inside information from her as the net closed in on the EncroChat system in June 2020.

When their home was raided, officers uncovered messages referring to 100kg packages, cocaine parcels stamped with the ‘Hublot’ brand, evidence of drug exchanges, and a conversation about a possible gun deal.

Agalliu, who claimed to work in ballet as an “artist”, suggested he had been “set up”, but was faced with overwhelming evidence of his drug operation during the trial.

He used the alias ‘Nicemoon’ on EncroChat – a communication system favoured by organised crime which had been infiltrated in an international law enforcement breakthrough.

“They thought their communications were encrypted, so secure and police would never be able to read them. As a result, they were somewhat careless with messages they sent to each other”, said prosecutor William Davis.

Agalliu gave himself away as the operator of the ‘Nicemoon’ account by posting pictures of his luxury home and children, as well as references to driving his wife to work at Kensington police station.

In one exchange, Agalliu boasted that his wife has been promoted to Sergeant in the Met, and he sent her a copy of a police report for verification when a friend had been arrested.

When it had become clear the EncroChat network had been infiltrated by law enforcement, Agalliu was asked if his wife knew about the operation.

“Do she have any information?”, an associate said, adding: “What if she gets hold of the EncroChat? Tell her to hide the papers.”

Police found drugs in a Louis Vuitton box under Agalliu’s bed, as well as £27,000 in cash at his home.

PC Agalliu’s tribunal referred to the couple using cars worth £250,000, rent payments of £5000-a-month, and a property worth £1.8 million.

“Her husband would earn between £1000 and £4000 a week for his work as a private chef working in footballers’ homes”, the tribunal said, of PC Agalliu’s evidence.

“He would work weekends and sometimes after training he would go to their houses to cook. He was paid in cash.”

The ruling continued: “She said she questioned how much her husband was getting from footballers and parties but was told to shut up and stay out of it and it was none of her business. It was put to her that they were living beyond their means. She said it was not her doing this, it was him.”

Claims that drugs were planted at her home were rejected by the panel, who concluded she was guilty of gross misconduct.

PC Agalliu, a mother-of-three, was sacked, but did not face any criminal charges following the raid on her home.

Daniel McNeil-Duncan, from Brentwood in Essex, who had been in regular contact with Julian Agalliu on EncroChat, pleaded guilty to two charges of conspiracy to supply drugs shortly after the trial began.

Agalliu, from Hadley Wood, denied but was convicted of conspiracy to supply class A drugs, conspiracy to supply class B drugs, possession with intent to supply cocaine, and possession of criminal property.

Both will be sentenced on February 9.
