‘Expect To Be Caught… When You Least Expect It’

A drug dealer from Ash has been sentenced to time in prison after officers found cocaine in his car during a proactive stop and search in Camberley earlier this year.

Plain-clothed officers were travelling in an unmarked vehicle when they pulled over a car linked to an organised crime group on Portsmouth Road on May 12.

The driver was acting suspiciously, and after a bag of cocaine was found in his car door pocket, a further search found a further seven grip-seal bags of cocaine concealed in his car.

He was also in possession of hundreds of pounds in cash as well as two phones, one of which was suspected of being a burner phone. A later search of the device found that the phone was being used to sell cocaine.

Bajram Brahmani, 23, of Pilgrims View in Ash, was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court last Thursday, October 27, after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Police Constable Jack Selby, who investigated the case, said: “I hope this case shows that if you’re dealing drugs in Surrey, you should expect to be caught, sometimes when you least expect it.

“Our work never stops and we will continue to proactively and relentlessly pursue those who deal drugs in our communities, they have no place in Surrey.”

    How much time in prison? It is the obvious question?

    If the police and judiciary are serious about stopping drug dealing they need to impose sentences that deter the activity. Otherwise it’s a waste of time and drug use may as well be legalised and government controlled.

    Mr Cooke raises an important point regarding the police and courts. Regretfully, while the police try hard to arrest criminals (I accept they could do a much better job but that debate is for another day) and the judiciary, I am sure, attempt to sentence wisely, it must be remembered both are constrained by legislation and government imposed sentencing guidelines.

    The latter, if not the former, is a source of frustration to both elements of law enforcement. So, before judgement is passed on those whose attempts at keeping us safe are limited by statute or political recommendations, perhaps the question should more correctly be directed at politicians to answer and not an excuse to unfairly criticise the police or judiciary.
