Main article content
A drug dealer in charge of a County Line running between London and Hampshire will be sentenced next month.
Mustafa Mohamed, aged 20, and of Halstow Road in Brent, was charged yesterday (1 February) with being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs, possession of an offensive weapon in a private place, and possessing criminal property.
This follows an investigation by Hampshire & Isle of Wight Constabulary’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit, with support from the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Orochi team who specialise in targeting County Lines drugs supply.
The investigation determined that Mohamed had been in control of the 'Tom' drugs line, which was operating between London and Farnborough, from August 2022 to January 2023.
After his arrest on 1 February, police searched his home where they found a Zombie Knife and £6,600 cash.
Appearing at Portsmouth Magistrates Court today, he admitted all of the offences, and will appear at Portsmouth Crown Court on 3 March for sentencing.
