A self-styled ‘Buzz Lightyear’ gang member responsible for supplying drugs in London has been sentenced to over three years in jail.

Perry Allen-Thomas, 20 (24.06.98) of the Wembley Park area was sentenced at Harrow Crown Court on Thursday, 17 January to 40 months in jail after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, possession with intent to supply Class B drugs and possession of criminal property.

The court heard how on Saturday, 27 October at around 06:00hrs, officers from Brent’s Gangs Unit assisted by officer from the Met’s Roads and Traffic Policing Command (RTPC) executed a drugs search warrant at the home address of Allen-Thomas.

Inside the address, officers found Allen-Thomas in bed. A search of the address was carried out and a number of items were seized, including four mobile phones, £3,770 cash, a Rolex watch valued at £7,000 and a ‘Buzz Lightyear’ pendant.

A large quantity of drugs were also seized – 40.32 grams of heroin, 22.9 grams of crack cocaine, 96.06 grams of cannabis and 0.8 grams of cocaine.

The street value of the drugs was over £7,000.

One of the phones seized contained footage of Allen-Thomas preparing drugs for sale.

Allen-Thomas was arrested at the address and on 27 October was charged with the above offences. He pleaded guilty at Harrow Crown Court on 21 December.

Detective Constable, Tom Palmer, said: “This man is a gang leader who is intent on supply drugs in London and across the country.

“The operation was initially put in place in response to concerns of drug dealing and anti-social behaviour in the Wembley area. This drug dealer has now been taken off of our streets and this continues to show our commitment to tackling organised criminals who seek to profit from the misery inflicted on local residents.”
