Tower Hamlets drug dealer jailed

A drug dealer from Bow has been jailed for more than ten years.

Shipu Miah, 23, (17.1.92), unemployed of Ford Road, E3 pleaded guilty at Snaresbrook Crown Court on 2 October 2015 to possession with intent to supply heroin and cocaine. He also pleaded guilty to possession of criminal property in the form of over £170,000 in cash.

He was sentenced at the same court on Friday, 8 January, to ten a half years’ imprisonment.

Miah was arrested on the evening of 10 June 2015 when officers raided a flat in Prince Meridian Walk, E14 which he was using as a safe house for the mixing and storage of Class A drugs. Recovered from within the premises were 2kg of heroin, 1kg of Cocaine, approx 54kg of cutting agent and £171,195.00 in cash.

DC Matthew Foy of the Met’s Organised Crime Command said: “I am delighted with the sentence handed down in this case, it sends out a clear message to those that think supplying Class A drugs is a way to earn a living. The impact on the people of London is severe and this has been reflected in this sentence.”
