A man has been sentenced to 38 months imprisonment after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
Nikhil Lama, 24, from Thornley Drive, Harrow, was arrested on 7 September 2020 after being stopped by officers at the junction of the A30 and Stanwell New Road. The story Lama gave officers was flawed and so he was detained for a search. Police dogs were brought in to check the vehicle and approximately 65 wraps of crack cocaine and a single large rock of Cocaine were found in the car along with an estimated £1,000.
Lama was arrested on suspicion with intent to supply, no car insurance and driving while disqualified.
He was charged and appeared at Guildford Crown Court on 4 February where he was sentenced to 38 months in prison.
Investigating Officer, PC Joshua Murray said: “The vehicle stop which led to Lama’s arrest was as a result of the work Surrey Police are doing every day to target drug related crime in the county.
“We rely on members of the public to report suspected drug activity in their area to help us build a bigger picture of serious organised crime. You may think that things such as the smell of weed or a property having lots of visitors late at night isn’t worth reporting, but this helps us build a bigger picture of what’s going on. We can assure you that all reports are taken seriously.”
