Police raid found 21 wraps of cocaine

A man has been jailed for drugs offences after cocaine was discovered in his house.

Joshua Collins, aged 24, of Shirebrook Road, Greenwich, was found guilty of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, namely cocaine, at Woolwich Crown Court and jailed for three-and-a-half years.

Detective Constable Aaron Saunders, from Greenwich Borough’s Gangs Unit, said: “I am pleased that the jury has convicted Collins, and seen through his lies to police and to the court; his arrogance to the crimes he has committed will not be tolerated.

“I hope that some reflection is taken, and that others who seek to replicate this activity should expect a significant prison sentence. Class A drug use causes misery to the community it is dealt and used in.”

On 14 July 2015, a search warrant was executed at Collins’s home and 21 wraps of cocaine, with a street value of £570, were discovered.

Collins was arrested and during interview claimed that the drugs were solely for his own personal use.

Officers examined his mobile phone which provided clear evidence that Collins was involved in the supply of drugs. It also contained a ledger of his sales.

Collins (pictured) was charged on 6 June 2016.
