Two drug-dealers have been jailed after cocaine was found in their car during a police stop on Guildford’s Southway in June.

Officers found a sock in the front passenger-door pocket containing two grip seal bags with white powder. Four phones and a small amount of cash were also seized.

Benard Axhami, 23, and Kurtish Axhami, 30, both of no fixed address, were arrested for possession with intent to supply.

In the room in the B&B where Kurtish Axhami was staying police found 30 more bags of cocaine, £5,000 in cash and drug paraphernalia.

At Guildford Crown Court yesterday (December 10), Kurtish Axhami was jailed for 43 months for possession with intent to supply and money laundering. Benard Axhami was sentenced to 12 months, also for possession with intent to supply.

PC Adam Grindley, from the West Surrey Proactive Team, said: “This result shows just how effective our proactive stop searches can be and we’d urge anyone with concerns about drug dealing to contact us. Information provided by members of the public is extremely valuable and can help make our communities safer.”

If you are concerned about drug use or drug dealing in your area, call police on 101 or via the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency, always dial 999.

Signs of potential drug dealing:

  • Lots of visitors, who don’t stay 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; 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; and
  • How many times you have seen them? and Is it always at the same time of day?

Do not 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.
