Main article content
A drug dealer from Lewisham has been sentenced to time in prison after he pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of heroin and crack cocaine.
Glenroy Wilson, born 24/09/1987, was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on Wednesday, 11 October and was given a 3 year and 3 month prison sentence, as well as being ordered to pay £228 in victim surcharge.
Wilson was first arrested after officers received intelligence that he was in Mole Valley delivering drugs for the ‘ghost’ county lines gang. His car was proactively stop-searched, and officers witnessed him attempting to swallow multiple drug wraps.
A wrap of cocaine was also found in the car, along with the ‘line’ phone for the gang and multiple messages relating to the supply of drugs.
Officers also searched his home address, where a number of items including heroin, drug supply paraphernalia, a large amount of cash and luxury items, were found.
Investigating officer, DC Richard Stoneham, said; “If you bring drugs into our county, we will pursue you and bring you to justice. The corrosive effect drugs has on communities cannot be overstated and we will do all we can to make Surrey as hostile a place as possible for drug dealers.
“If you are concerned about drug use or drug dealing in your area, contact us online or via the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency, always dial 999.”
