20-year-old jailed for conspiracy to sell crack and heroin

A 20-year-old man has been jailed for conspiracy to supply crack and heroin.

Douglas Pereira, 20, of Ferrers Road, Streatham, was sentenced to three years and four months’ in prison for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs and possession with intent to sell Class A drugs – cocaine – following a hearing at Willesden Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

He was sentenced alongside two men from north London. All three had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to charges of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Jorrell Ankrah, 27, of Boulevard Drive, Tottenham was sentenced to four years in prison for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs – crack and heroin.

Kevin Moata, 30, of no fixed address, was sentenced to three years and two months for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs – crack and heroin.

The investigation began after police stopped Pereira in Tottenham on September 27, 2022. 

He tried to run away but officers caught and detained him. He was in possession of several wraps of class A drugs and a phone. 

After downloading data from the phone, police found that Pereira was working with Ankrah and Moata to sell drugs. 

The Met identified the two older men as part of the “Mikey drugs line”.

Pereira was initially released on bail before being arrested and charged on October 4, 2022. Ankrah was arrested on the same day. 

Moata was found by police on October 18, 2022 in Leicester, where he was arrested and brought back to London.

Sergeant Nick Stylianou, investigating, said: “This proactive operation identified that the group were dealing class A drugs over a 10-month period, living lavish lifestyles, funded by their criminality. 

“The extensive work involved in the case demonstrates our commitment to tackling drug supply, which is heavily linked to exploitation and serious violence leading to untold misery in London.

“I hope this acts as a deterrent to those who partake in this type of criminal behaviour – the message is clear, if you choose to engage in dealing drugs, you will be identified, arrested and put before the courts.”
