A man from West Ealing has been jailed for three years and four months after being found dealing Class A drugs in the local area.

On Wednesday 30t June officers from Hobbayne Safer Neighbourhoods Team (SNT), along with colleagues from Elthorne and Cleveland SNT were on patrol in a marked police vehicle, responding to reports of drug use within the area of Leeland Road.

Their attention was drawn to three men talking in a car park. When they saw the officers they dispersed. A short time later two of the men were seen again, one chasing the other. One of the men, 55-year-old Kevin Speid 55 of Green Man Passage, W13 was detained after being seen discarding several small items which were recovered and discovered to be 26 small wraps of heroin.

Speid was arrested and in interview gave no comment to all questions asked of him. Despite this, he was charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs and remanded to court where he entered a not guilty plea.

He was remanded in prison until he appeared before Isleworth Crown Court earlier this month where he changed his plea to guilty and was given the jail sentence.

PC Johnny Rowles of Hobbayne SNT said, “This conviction sends a clear message to those who attempt to sell drugs in the West Area BCU that it will not be tolerated. Working together with other teams we will proactively track you down and make sure that these drugs are removed from the streets before they can cause harm.

“We rely on our community to help us tackle the supply of drugs and ask that, if you have information please call 101 or alternatively, to remain anonymous you can call the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
