A police inspector responsible for destroying seized drugs was found with £700,000 of cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and cannabis at his home, a court heard yesterday.

Keith Boots, 55, allegedly stole the drugs from police stores to put back on the streets for profit.

West Yorkshire Police colleagues raided his house and found large quantities of drugs hidden in the washing machine, fireplace and the fridge, Leeds Crown Court was told.

Paul Greaney, QC, prosecuting, said: ‘What was found on the ground floor would have kept a 1970s rock star and his band, entertained for weeks.’

He said that included his washing machine jammed full of plastic bags containing drugs.

‘What do you keep in your washing machine?’ he asked the jury. ‘Keith Boots had over 11 kilograms of cocaine worth hundreds of thousands of pounds on the street in his.’

Boots had been in the force for over 20 years and was based in Bradford where one of his jobs was to supervise the incineration of controlled drugs seized in his area from criminals.
What was found on the ground floor would have kept a 1970s rock star and his band, entertained for weeks.
Paul Greaney, QC

Instead the officer is said to have stolen the drugs and plotted with his son Ashley, 31, to move them on.

Mr Greaney said: ‘What Keith Boots had been doing is as simple as it is wicked. In gross breach of trust, he had been exploiting weaknesses in the system for the destruction of controlled drugs in order to steal them.’

Adding: ‘He was stealing and storing drugs so that they could then be supplied unlawfully to others.

‘In other words, the Boots operation did not just involve the theft of drugs that had been removed from the streets by the police, it also involved putting them back on to those same streets and the person principally responsible was Keith Boots, a police inspector.’

The late night raid on Boots’s home in Bradford in December 2014 happened after a colleague noticed cocaine was missing from the station store.

Officers forced the door in and found a ‘warehouse’ of drugs inside and the inspector, who was in his dressing gown, was arrested.

Mr Greaney said the ‘variety and volume of controlled drugs’ made the situation ‘exceptional,’ but what made it ‘unique’ was the owner was a serving police inspector stationed just three miles away.

The jury heard disposal of seized drugs after criminal trials finish was vital to ensure they do no further harm.

Instead they ended up in Boots’ house to be put back into circulation.

Although Boots was ‘principally responsible’ he was not in it alone, the court heard. His son Ashley was a man with criminal connections and his fingerprints, like those of his father, were discovered on drug packaging.

A third defendant Ian Mitchell came into the case because he subsequently claimed to have planted the drugs at the home of Boots.

Mr Greaney said after the raid Keith and Ashley Boots were desperately worried about their own positions.

‘Understandably so, for how were they going to explain the presence of hundreds of thousands of pounds’ worth of controlled drugs, not to mention some ammunition, in the home of Keith Boots?’

At this point Ian Mitchell, an associate of Ashley and someone wanted by the police for recall to prison in connection with a criminal offence, went into a Leeds police station in January and handed himself in.

Mitchell, 28, claimed to have hidden the drugs in the house on behalf of a drug dealer, who he refused to name, claiming his friend Keith Boots was blameless.

‘But all of this was lies and nonsense and his tale quickly unravelled,’ Mr Greaney told the jury.

Keith Boots denies four counts of theft and along with his son Ashley six of possession of controlled drugs with intent to supply, one of possessing ammunition, three of conspiracy to supply controlled drugs, one of conspiracy to steal and one of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Mitchell, denies one count of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

The offences were said to have taken place between May 2012 and December 2014. The trial continues.

West Midlands Police - Leading The Way.

'...attracting, developing and retaining staff from diverse backgrounds to better represent the areas it serves'.

Is there a humble little department somewhere in this Police area that actually spends time trying to recruit people on merit, regardless of their background?

We have to have representation from all walks of life.

West Midlands police just went a little too far in their interpretation and recruited drug dealers. Cry
