A dealer who ran a nationwide drugs operation was busted with a haul of crack cocaine, cash – and a blinged-out pendant of BUZZ LIGHTYEAR.
Perry Allen-Thomas was caught in laying in bed with more than five ounces of drugs around his house during a police raid.
The 20-year-old ran the gang using mobile phones – that when searched revealed him preparing the drugs for sale.
Drugs seized included 40 grams of heroin, 23 grams of crack cocaine, 96 grams of cannabis and a gram of cocaine.
Allen-Thomas, of Wembley Park, north west London, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs on December 21.
He also pleaded guilty to possession of criminal property, after cops discovered £3,770 cash, and a Rolex watch worth £7,000.
The dealer received three years and four months imprisonment after he was sentenced at Harrow Crown Court.
Detective Constable Tom Palmer said: “This man is a gang leader who is intent on supply drugs in London and across the country.
“The operation was initially put in place in response to concerns of drug dealing and anti-social behaviour in the Wembley area.
“This drug dealer has now been taken off of our streets and this continues to show our commitment to tackling organised criminals who seek to profit from the misery inflicted on local residents.”
A Met Police spokesperson said: “On Saturday, October 27 at around 6am, officers executed a drugs search warrant at the home address of Allen-Thomas.
“A search of the address was carried out and a number of items were seized, including four mobile phones, £3,770 cash, a Rolex watch valued at £7,000 and a ‘Buzz Lightyear’ pendant.
“A large quantity of drugs were also seized – the street value of the drugs was over £7,000. Inside the address, officers found Allen-Thomas in bed.
“One of the phones seized contained footage of Allen-Thomas preparing drugs for sale.”
