Harrow drug dealer jailed for nine years after 12 kilos of cocaine found in his car
A drug dealer found with 12 kilos of cocaine with a street value of £1.2 million was recently (Friday 21 September) jailed for nine years at the Old Bailey.
Stuart Reid, 31 from Harrow was arrested by the joint National Crime Agency and Met Police Organised Crime Partnership (OCP).
On 1 August this year, Reid, from Grange Road, Harrow was stopped in his car on the North Circular Road in Ilford by officers from the Met Police’s ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) team following a request by the OCP.
Reid pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A drugs at an earlier hearing.
Officers searched the car and found 12 blocks of cocaine wrapped in brown paper on the back seat of the vehicle.
Matt McMillan, NCA Operations Manager, recently (21 September 2018) said: “Disrupting the supply of Class A drugs is crucial in our efforts to tackle organised crime and the violence it causes in and around London.
“Reid received a nine year sentence at the Old Bailey today, which highlights the seriousness of his offence.
“We will actively target drug dealers like Reid, who are involved in serious and organised crime including the distribution of illicit drugs, which blight the lives of so many, lead to further criminality and fuels violence and exploitation.”
