A property consultant who joined a Breaking Bad-style crystal meth network has been jailed for two years and eight months.

Mehdi Rezougbertin was part of a network run by Italian drugs baron Alessandro Bocchini and his brother Stefano, a former rugby player.

Rezougbertin looked after large quantities of drugs for Alessandro Bocchini, after he became addicted to meth-fuelled orgies, according to Court News UK.

He met Alessandro in London's underground gay scene after becoming depressed due to being diagnosed with Hepatitis C and HIV.

When he was arrested by police in October 2016, police discovered he had crystal meth worth £60,000 as well as a stun gun which was disguised as a torch.

They also found other items including mini blowtorches and various prescription drugs such as viagra and tramadol in his room at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel in Kensington.

The drugs network operated by storing the crystal meth in hotels and using Uber drivers to deliver it.

The drugs had also been dyed blue, according to police, matching the substance seen in TV show Breaking Bad.

Alessandro Bocchini received six years in jail and his wife four years, after police raided their home in Bayswater.

Lorenzo Bocchini, who played for Italian rugby teams L’Aquila and Viadana between 2000 and 2010, was also jailed for six years for his role in the network.
