HE was just your average, everyday next-door neighbour – a father of two lovely youngsters and an adoring husband.

But the cloak of respectability of Edwin Almond was smashed today when he was revealed as a Mr Big of the drugs world.

Neighbours of the 32-year-old couldn't help but notice that he had several luxury cars parked on his property, in High Road, Trimley St Mary – a Lotus Elise, a Jaguar and a Ducati motorbike.

Little did anyone realise that the vehicles were stolen and inside his village farmhouse were more than 2,500 ecstasy tablets.
