Drug dealing gang imprisoned

JAILED: Cleveland Williamson, left, and Jazz Reid

GANG MEMBERS in west London guilty of dealing drugs have been sent to prison for a combined sentence of 26 years.

Seven young men and teenagers were convicted of selling class A drugs in Kensington and Chelsea – they were convicted on Wednesday (August 28) at Isleworth Crown Court after denying the charges.

In November 2012, the gang forcibly took over a property on Wornington Road, which they converted into a drugs den – they mainly supplied crack cocaine and heroin.

The seven jailed are: Cleveland Williamson, 22, a student, sentenced to six years; Jazz Reid, 21, got five years; Aimen Mawia, 19, handed five years and six months at a young offenders institution; Steve Mutesa, 19, got three years and six months; while the others are two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

One 17-year-old received a four-year term at a young offenders institution for dealing drugs, and the other got a 12-month supervision order after being found guilty of possessing a knife.

DCI Rhys Willis, from Kensington and Chelsea Police, said: “Today's sentence of more than twenty five years collectively for these individuals can only be a really positive step forward in the boroughs commitment to tackle criminal gangs.

“We have over the past twelve months been extremely successful with our partners at the local authority in tackling those that cause us the most harm. These gang members unlawfully took over someone's property with the clear intention to deal crack cocaine to the wider community.

He added: “I would like to thank the uniform officers who tackled in the first instance these criminals and to the detectives who secured the unequivocal evidence.

“We will as an organisation and with our partners offer diversion opportunities if however, young men refuse to engage and continue to commit criminal activity we will actively seek them out and bring them to justice.”
