Mole Valley Beat Bulletin Weds 31st Jan 2018

Alert message sent 31/01/2018 10:48:00

Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

Two men sentenced to seven years in bid to crack down on county drug dealers in Surrey.

Work by officers on proactive patrols has put two more cross county drug dealers behind bars for seven years as part of Operation Viking.

Joseph Olawoyin and Peter Roberts were stopped in a car while in the middle of a drugs deal on Chart Downs in Dorking by police carrying out patrols in August 2017.

Officers then searched the vehicle and found 20 wraps of crack cocaine and heroin and a long list of addresses for potential future deal across Surrey in the car.

Olawoyin, 19, of Jonson Close in Merton was charged with possession with intent to supply the class A drugs, crack cocaine and heroin.

Roberts, 19, of Wandle Road in Merton was charged with possession with intent to supply the class the A drugs, crack cocaine and heroin, and possession of cannabis.

Both were sentenced yesterday (29 January) at Guildford Crown Court.

Olawoyin was sentenced to three years and one month, and Roberts was sentenced to four years.

Surrey Police’s Op Viking has been in action since before Christmas 2016 to disrupt drug dealing gangs who are coming into Surrey to commit crime and prey on vulnerable people.

A big part of the operation involves officers proactively looking for potential dealers in action.

If you have information about suspected drug dealing or crime in your area, please either contact Surrey Police via www.Surrey.Police.UK or by calling 101.

If you don’t want to speak to Police, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111. They never ask your name or trace your call and you could earn yourself a reward.

What are the signs of potential drug dealing:

  • Lots of visitors, who don’t stay very long, arriving at all times of the day and night
  • People waiting in cars outside particular properties exchanging small packets or cash
  • Lots of visitors bringing items such as TVs or bikes but leaving empty handed
  • Lone/vulnerable neighbours suddenly having groups of young men living at their address

What we want to know:

  • Time, date and place
  • Vehicle registrations and the make, model and colour
  • Descriptions of people and details of what they were doing
  • Direction they travelling to and from
  • How many times you have seen them – is it always at the same time of day?

Don’t put yourself at risk while gathering this information. Please always pass the information to the police and do not confront or approach suspected drug dealers.

THURS 1st Feb 2018 @BTP will be at Dorking Station from 07HRS offering free bike marking and bike locks for season ticket holder’s #LockItMarkIt

I am unsure if you are aware of Bike register but it’s a chemical based compound that leaves a UV trace on the bike and self-etches into the frame (carbon bikes are done with a different process). This puts a unique number on the bike that’s links the owner with the bike and helps Police or a reputable seller identify a stolen bike if anybody comes in contact with it.

As for the Locks we are as you can imagine they are going really fast but they are Cat 10 Gold standard D-Locks paid for by the proceeds of crime.

But these are only for season ticket holders while stocks last.
