Man convicted of drug offences, Wembley

A man who used a schoolboy in a drug dealing enterprise has been found guilty following a trial.

Silas Rose-Morris, 18 (16.03.03) of Empire Way, Wembley was found guilty at Harrow Crown Court on Wednesday, 17 November of possession with intent to supply class A drugs (MDMA) and possession of criminal property. He had earlier pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of class B drugs (cannabis) possession of a prohibited weapon (PAVA spray) and making malicious communications.

The court heard how Rose-Morris’s offending came to light after a 14-year-old boy reported his life had been threatened by an adult male who was using him to sell cannabis infused sweets, known as edibles.

Officers began an investigation and identified Rose-Morris as the suspect. On 25 June officers raided Rose-Morris’s address and found a number of items which incriminated him, including mobile devices used to threaten the victim and contact other juveniles, a number of infused sweets, a large number of MDMA tablets and cash.

Rose-Morris was bailed and is due for sentence at the same court in February 2022.

Sergeant PJ Jones of the North West Command Predatory Offender Unit said:

“We will continue to target individuals like Rose-Morris who criminally exploit juveniles or the vulnerable, and have resources dedicated to investigating these types of crimes.

“We urge anyone with information about any predatory offenders to contact police directly or speak to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously. There are many support networks that are available for those who need them.”
