A 35-year-old man from Ealing has been jailed for 30 months after being found guilty of dealing in heroin and crack cocaine.

Igors Sartakovs of The Avenue was sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on Thursday 23 December 2021.

On Friday 13 November 2020, officers from the West Area Violence Suppression Unit were on patrol in Ealing when they spotted a number of people walking into an alleyway.

As officers were speaking to the group Sartakovs approached on a pedal cycle. He was detained and was found in possession of 21 wraps of crack cocaine and heroin ready to supply.

He was arrested for possession with intent to supply and further drugs were found after a search of his home. Text messages on his phone confirmed that he had arranged to meet the group in the alleyway to supply drugs.

Sartakovs was bailed and after officers consulted with the CPS, was charged with both offences on Friday 3 September 2021.

He initially denied the charges but due to the weight of evidence against him he later changed his plea to guilty.

PC Taylor of the Violence suppression unit said, “This is another example of great police work using local knowledge to stop and arrest a drug dealer. Drugs have been shown to be linked to the violence plaguing our streets in London and the UK as a whole. We will do anything we can to disrupt this practice, which takes advantage of vulnerable users and funds gangs through the sale of drugs on our streets. This is just one of many that we have imprisoned since the launch of the West Area Violence Suppression Unit back in May 2020 and we will relentlessly seek out and arrest criminals by using a range of tactics available to us”.
