A Bexleyheath drug dealer has been jailed for almost seven years after pleading guilty at Woolwich Crown Court.
Luke Douglas, 24, of Edendale Road, appeared at Woolwich Crown Court last Thursday (October 11) and admitted five counts of possession of controlled drugs with intent to supply before being sentenced to six years and eight months behind bars.
Police searched two properties, one in Edendale Road and the other in Sydney Road, Abbey Wood, on Feburary 8 of this year. Drugs with a value of around £250,000 were found at Sydney Road and more than £32,000 was found at Edendale Road, of which more than £1,000 was counterfeit.
The following day Douglas was charged, and police added further possession with intent to supply charges on June 25.
Acting Det Ch Insp Steve Underwood said: “This highlights our intention to seek out anyone actively involved in the drugs trade.
“The seizure of this substantial quantity of drugs not only represents a substantial loss of revenue to those involved in the crime, but also prevents its distribution on the streets of Bexley and further afield.”
