Acton drug dealer jailed for running drugs line from London to Surrey

A joint operation between Surrey Police and London’s Metropolitan Police has seen a drug dealer from Acton being sent to prison for three years.

Hashim Mohamed, 22, of Ferguson Drive in Acton was sentenced to 3 years imprisonment on 3 March 2023 at Guildford Crown Court,

Mohamed was found guilty of being concerned in the supply of class A (heroin) and being concerned in the supply of class A (crack cocaine)

Mohamed was caught by police in August 2020 after officers acted on intelligence that he was running a drugs supply line that was trafficking drugs into the Leatherhead and Epsom areas of Surrey.

In a dawn raid at his home address, officers along with colleagues from the Met’s Operation Orochi County Lines Taskforce, woke up a sleeping Mohamed and found the ‘Chris’ line phone under his pillow with messages showing the large-scale organisation and sale of drugs into Surrey.

Mohamed was arrested on suspicion of a number of drug offences and subsequently charged.

Detective Constable Elliott Abdo, who led the investigation said: “Drugs can have a devastating impact on local communities and cause a ripple effect of anti-social behaviour, exploitation, violence and linked crimes. Because of this, it is something we take extremely seriously here in Surrey. Proactive policing and intelligence gathering means that if you are part of illegal drug supply activity, you can be reassured that we will catch you.”
