THREE men have been charged with involvement in county line drug trafficking following a series of raids.
Samson Danso (23), Jedaiah Muikira (21) and William Cranford (20) appeared in custody at Crawley Magistrates’ Court, Woodfield Road, Crawley on Thursday 7 July.
In a combined operation by Sussex Police and the Metropolitan Police, three arrest warrants were executed, one in Littlehampton and two in Croydon, on Tuesday morning, July 5.
Four men were arrested on suspicion of supplying crack cocaine and heroin. Drugs with an estimated street value of £15,000, more than £4,000 in cash and 11 mobile phones were seized.
Detective Constable Jon Woolley of the West Sussex Community Investigation Team said: “This is another example of how we are successfully working with colleagues at the Met to disrupt those suspected of distributing dangerous drugs in our communities.”
Danso and Muikira, both from Leyburn Gardens in Croydon, and Cranford, from Terminus Road in Littlehampton, have been accused of being concerned about the supply of heroin and crack cocaine.
Cranford and Danson were also charged with possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin.
Muikira has also been accused of possession with intent to supply cannabis.
Danson was also charged with money laundering.
All three were remanded in custody to appear at Lewes Crown Court on Lewes High Street on August 4.
A 31-year-old man who had been arrested in Littlehampton on suspicion of concern over the supply of Class A drugs has been released as part of the investigation.
