A drug dealer is facing the next four and and a half years behind bars after he was sentenced at Winchester Crown Court today (December 8).

Edvaldo Dokaj, 38, was stopped by officers on Woodbridge Road, Guildford, at 11.35pm on Wednesday, March 29. It was suspected that his vehicle was involved in drug supply.

Dokaj was arrested and detained under the Misuse of Drugs Act and found to be in possession of a sum of cash, a mobile phone containing messages relating to drug supply and a small bag of white powder, which was later forensically tested and confirmed to be cocaine.

He was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and charged and remanded into custody. The defendant was found guilty after a four-day trial where he received a custodial sentence.

The investigating officer, PC Shepherd, said: “We are committed to tackling drug dealing across Surrey.

“If you are concerned about drug use or drug dealing in your area, contact us online or via the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency, always dial 999.

“Please share as much information as you can with us, as it all helps us to keep the borough safe.”

A police spokesperson said that the signs of potential drug dealing are:

  • 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 TVs or bikes but leaving empty handed
  • Lone/vulnerable neighbours suddenly having groups of young men living at their address

The police say they would want to know:

  • Time, date and place
  • Vehicle registration and the make, model and colour
  • Descriptions of people and details of what they were doing.
