Speeding drug dealer jailed
Found to possess drugs after being stopped on Roehampton Lane
Carlos Scott, 30, unemployed, of International Way, Sunbury on Thames, Middlesex appeared at Kingston Crown Court on Friday 31 March and was convicted of possession with intent to supply Class A and Class C drugs and sentenced to three and a half years’ imprisonment.
On 6 September 2005, a police response car stopped Mr Scott on the Roehampton Lane part of the A3 motorway due to the speed he was travelling. He became agitated which led the officers to conduct a search for offensive weapons and drugs.
The officers found a bag containing six wraps of herbal cannabis, which he claimed were for his personal use, and arrested him for possession with intent to supply. They took him to Wandsworth police station and conducted an underwear search, where they found a substantial amount of cocaine.
A Section 18 search was carried out in Mr Scott’s house and officers found a clear plastic container containing a substantial amount of cocaine, cash and electronic scales. He was charged with possession with intent to supply Class A and Class C drugs.
Chief Supt. Joe Royle (pictured left) said: “This is a significant result for Operation Shield, the borough’s strategic plan to arrest and charge drug dealers, and where possible, seize the proceeds of crime and put it to good use.”
