Hammersmith drug dealer jailed for 6 years

A 47 year-old man from Hammersmith has been jailed for a total of 6 years for drug related offences.

Michael Dixon of Star Road, London, W14, was found guilty of Possession with intent to supply drugs and Possession of Drugs at Kingston Crown Court on the 19th April 2010.

On 19th April 2009 local officers were patrolling the Chelsea v Fulham match when Dixon was seen acting suspiciously. He was later found to be in possession of 47 rocks of crack cocaine and a quantity of heroin. He was arrested and charged in June 2009.

The trial judge praised the officers statements and commented on their extensive local knowledge. He described Dixon as a dangerous individual who has the ability to corrupt youths in the area and had made no improvements during his 20 years addiction to controlled drugs.

Acting Sergeant Gethin Jones from Askew Safer Neighbourhoods Team said, " Uniform and CID officers suspected the individual of dealing drugs on Hammersmith & Fulham Borough for sometime. The sentence for this incident is particularly pleasing and will show drug dealers that there is a heavy price to pay for committing such an act"
