A drug dealer from Wembley who was caught with wraps of crack cocaine during a routine stop and search has been sent to jail.
Police discovered 10 wraps of the class A drug in a car after Michael Murray, 27, of Barnhill Road, had been stopped in Paige Avenue, Wembley, in possession of the vehicle’s key.
The officers also found a further three wraps and a large amount of cash at his home during a search.
Murray was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A and officers launched an investigation into his activities, bank accounts, whereabouts, earnings and lifestyle.
The six-month probe led to him facing further charges of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and possession of criminal property in relation to the cash.
At Harrow Crown Court he was found guilty of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and possession of criminal property and jailed for three-and-a-half years.
DC Fiona Davidson, from Brent Police said: “This is a good result for the community of Brent and I am pleased that a drug dealer has been taken off the streets.
