A HEROIN dealer from Croydon has been jailed for seven and a half years today. Kwame Gyanfi, 31, of Waddon Road, Croydon, was given the sentence at Croydon Crown Court after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs. Officers from Croydon Metropolitan Police Service's Crime Squad raided his address on August 9, 2013 and discovered two kilograms of heroin and approximately 250 grams of crack cocaine. They also found drugs paraphernalia including hydraulic press machines and 27.5 kilograms of cutting agents. Independent experts estimated the street value of drugs was approximately £150,000. Gyanfi was arrested at the scene and charged the following day. He pleaded guilty to the offence at Croydon Crown Court on February 18. Detective Constable Kieran Given, from Croydon CID, who carried out the investigation said: "Gyanfi's arrest and conviction was as a result of a well planned operation and he was literally caught red-handed as we arrested him carrying a hold-all with a kilo of heroin inside. "Drug dealers cause serious harm to our communities and we will carry on targeting those involved in the supply of drugs in Croydon. "This investigation came about from information we received from the local community and it shows that we can achieve real success in ridding neighbourhoods of drugs by working together."
