A Woolwich drug dealer has been jailed for four years.

Mojtab Moradi, 30, (21.3.87) of Brookhill Road, Greenwich was sentenced on Friday, 3 March, at Woolwich Crown Court.

On 15 September 2016, officers from the Greenwich Gangs Unit and Proactive Crime Squad stopped Moradi in a Nissan Qashqai in Willenhall Road, SE18. He was found in possession of 46 wraps of crack cocaine.

Officers searched Moradi's room in Brookhill Road and discovered a ledger that contained details of his supplies, and other drug dealing paraphernalia.

He was charged the following day with being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, and remanded in custody awaiting his trial.

On Friday, 3 March, Moradi was found guilty by a jury of possessing crack cocaine with intent to supply.

Detective Constable Gavin Russell from Greenwich Borough Gangs Unit said:

"This is a significant sentence of imprisonment for intent to supply Class A drugs that would have inevitably caused misery to its intended recipients and caused harm to the community by way of anti-social behaviour.

"This latest conviction should act as a deterrent to others involved in the supply of drugs.

"Officers from the Gangs Unit in Greenwich have arrested a significant number of drug dealers in the past year - I want to assure the residents of Greenwich it will not be our last."
