First published in Lewisham by

A DRUG DEALER has been jailed for four years after a search of his house uncovered drugs worth £22,000.

Paul Thompson, aged 39, of Malyons Road, Lewisham was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court on Monday.

He received four years imprisonment for possession with intent to supply a quarter of a kilo of cocaine, and a further two years for possession with intent to supply two kilos of skunk cannabis.

Thompson pleaded guilty to both offences and his sentences are to run concurrently.

On December 8 last year, officers from the Met’s Operation Trilogy executed a search warrant at Thompson’s home after receiving intelligence he was dealing and supplying drugs.

Inside they found 240g of cocaine hydrochloride, as well as various mixing agents used to cut the Class A drug.

Scales and a pestle and mortar containing cocaine, which showed the preparation of drugs at the address, were also discovered.

In addition, police found two kilos of cannabis and around £3,000 in cash.

The search also resulted in the seizure of a number of imitation firearms – no charges were brought in relation to this.

Operation Trilogy’s Detective Constable Chris Lewis said: “The sentence Thompson has received reflects the serious nature of the crimes committed, and should serve as a warning to others that the Operation Trilogy Unit in Lewisham will relentlessly pursue anyone involved in organised criminality in our borough.”

So this is the face of the man our government trusts to be responsible when it comes to supplying our children with drugs. Funny he doesn't look and sound responsible.

The good news is he is a one stop shop - just come for some cannabis? No worries, you'll surely fancy some cocaine as well.

This man is a walking advertisement for the terrible dangers of leaving a safe drug like cannabis in the hands of criminals, because he has managed to make a safe drug dangerous. Handing criminals like him complete supply of cannabis is making him a fortune, and it's a terrible thing for our children's safety.

We should make him a poster boy with his mush.

The trouble with this country is these sentences are just too easy..
He has £3,000 cash obviously the proceeds of crime, 2 immitation guns obviously to operate in crime.. and £22,000 worth of illegal drugs and four years just means 2 years as everyone knows
This coalition Government has failed the public.. immigration, crime, anti-social behaviour, gangs, has all increased under this and the last Government..
Now we see Labour and Conservative and Lib Dem Members of Parliment brawling in the commons!
Mps get subsidised drinks in their drinking bars while they put up the prices for everyone else..
To think of these Mps in their expensive suits smashing doors and fighting amongst themselves is a real shock and when 8 hard working police officers had to be rushed to the commons to break up this drunken brawl taking the police away from other important duties, it makes one think, why on earth do we bother voting for Labour-Conservative-
Lib-Dems when they behave like this..!!!!

So this overweight maggot criminal has got that way not from working but from selling drugs...
Who has £3k lying around in their homes these days? pensioners are struggling to pay their heating bills & put food on the table & motorists in these country are paying the highest taxes in EU more than anyone else... no one has that kind of cash at home & this maggot had 2 "immitation" guns that could be converted into firing bullets like we have all seen before where young gang members shoot each other over "respect" & "post codes" so this person should have got 15yrs as he is personally responsible for having the materials that fuels "gang crime" He is a complete wast of space & i would rather have a load of working class chav English guys & girls as neighbours trying to find employment than this scum bag getting overweight selling drugs from his home & having guns in his property... i hope they seize his cash & property to send out a clear message...
Gangs in London are responsible for a good proportion of crime & a lot of them have newly arrived immigrants in them so "immigration" is a major problem with "crime"
The labour party leader had some Labour party member claiming that she had "lost" 8 members of her family to crime...
Now it turns out she was lying so you cant really trust what the Labour party members are saying...
Labour & Cons & Liberals just tell a pack of lies to get elected then dont do any of the things they promised to do...
Waste of a vote for for any of these!
