A Belvedere drug dealer has been jailed for three years after police caught him with heroin and crack cocaine in Woolwich.

Nathaniel Eyewu-Ago, 30, of Caldy Road, was stopped by officers in the grounds of St Mary's Church in Greenlaw Street on July 6.

When the plain clothes officers from Greenwich Gangs Unit approached him, he ditched the 10 wraps of heroin and 14 wraps of crack cocaine he had with him and tried to make a run for it.

He was arrested close to the scene and charged the following day.

On Thursday, August 4, Eyewu-Ago pleaded guilty at Woolwich Crown Court to possession with intent to supply 1.89 grams of crack cocaine and 1.35 grams of heroin.


He was sentenced to three years' imprisonment on the same day.

Detective Constable Andrew Payne of the Greenwich Gangs Unit said: "I am very happy with the sentence imposed today.

"It should act as a deterrent to others.

"I want to make it very clear to people seeking to profit from supplying drugs that we will robustly target you, using all methods at our disposal.

"I also want to reassure the residents of Greenwich borough that we will constantly look to tackle and dismantle the drug supply network and address the anti-social activities surrounding drug misuse.

"I encourage the community to inform us of drug supply in your area."

Anyone with information can call police on 101.
