A man has been sentenced to six years in jail for offences relating to Class A drugs, following a raid at his Woolwich home.

Mohammed Hashi, 21 (13.10.96) was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court on Thursday, 4 January for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

On 3 July 2017, at approximately 13:30hrs, officers from the Greenwich Gangs Unit and Estates Team executed a warrant at the address on John Wilson Street, SE18.

Upon gaining entry to the property, officers witnessed Hashi discard a small drugs parcel. Sums of cash and further amounts of Class A drugs were also found and seized.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges at Woolwich Crown Court, but was found guilty by majority verdict on Thursday, 4 January.

Detective Constable Husna Nessa, the investigating officer from Greenwich’s Violent and Organised Crime Unit, said: "Drug dealing and gang activity is an issue that disrupts many communities and affects lives.

"On this occasion, we were able to target known gang members and disrupt their operation with a great result.

"We remain committed to apprehending those who seek to use and deal drugs in Woolwich and beyond."
