Isleworth Man Jailed for Dealing Class A Drugs
One of 15 sentenced after major operation led by Hounslow Crime Squad
A man from Isleworth was one of 15 men who received convictions after a massive operation by the Hounslow Crime Squad hit drug dealing in the borough.
24-year-old Khalid Ahmedpoor of Summerwood Road was sentenced last month to two years and nine months' imprisonment at Isleworth Crown Court for supplying Class A drugs. Police have only just released details of the case as the last of the gang sentenced on 30 April.
They were sentenced after a police operation targeting the supply of drugs in west London. The convictions come following a series of raids led by Hounslow Crime. Operation Buxton took place on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 February and resulted in quantities of Class A and B drugs and cash being seized following a series of raids at addresses across Hounslow and Hillingdon.
More than 300 officers were involved in operation, led by Hounslow officers, with additional support provided by officers from the Territorial Support Group, the Met Task Force and surrounding boroughs.
Detective Chief Inspector Helen Flanagan, Hounslow CID, said: "Taking all of these men off the streets is a fantastic result for the local community and London in general. They were all linked to the supply of class A and B drugs and by putting them behind bars this will disrupt the supply of drugs into the capital.
"Operation Buxton is indicative of our commitment to keep Hounslow safe, and listen to and act on community concerns. We will continue to disrupt and dismantle crime, safeguard our community and locate and prosecute those people who inflict misery on them.
"By targeting drug dealing we can continue to have a positive and long term impact on related crimes such as knife crime, violent and acquisitive crime and on the quality of life of our communities.
"The support of our community is essential to achieve positive change and I would like to thank those in our community for providing that ongoing support to us. I hope this result demonstrates that our actions, in conjunction with the Local Authority, show we do act on their concerns."
