One Surrey drug dealer has been jailed for three years and four months for multiple offences. Christopher Amirjani, 29, of Stoke Road, Guildford, was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on August 7 after being found guilty of three counts of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply.

His companion, Marissa Atkins, 28, of Rushetts Road, Reigate, was also found guilty of being concerned with the supply of class A drugs and was given a two-year sentence suspended for 18 months.

Amirjani and Atkins were arrested on Tuesday, February 18 after officers stopped their car outside Cobham Park Estate and noticed a strong smell of cannabis.

They searched the car and uncovered a kilo of class A drugs, about £1,000 in cash, and four mobile phones. The couple was arrested.

Detective Inspector Matt Chapman said “Tackling drug-dealing in our local communities continues to be one of our top priorities and the sentence given to Amirjani has resulted in another class A drugs-dealer being taken off our streets.

“We rely heavily on members of the public when tackling drug-dealing. Any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, even a call to report a property having lots of visitors late at night, helps us build a bigger picture of what’s going on. All information received is taken seriously and can lead to stop checks and drug-dealers being brought to justice.

“Information can be reported online, or by calling 101. Always call 999 in an emergency.”

What are the signs of potential drug-dealing?

  • Lots of visitors, who don’t stay very long, arriving at all times of the day and night;
  • People waiting in cars outside particular properties exchanging small packets or cash;
  • Lots of visitors bringing items such as T.Vs or bikes but leaving empty-handed; and
  • Lone/vulnerable neighbours suddenly having groups of young men living at their address..

What police want to know

  • Time, date and place;
  • Vehicle registrations and the make, model and colour;
  • Descriptions of people and details of what they were doing;
  • Direction they travelling to and from;
  • How many times you have seen them? Is it always at the same time?

Don’t put yourself at risk while gathering this information. Please, always pass the information to the police and do not confront or approach suspected drug dealers.
