A doorman who was dealing cocaine and cannabis from his Lewisham home has been jailed for four years.

Paul Thompson, 39, was found guilty at Woolwich Crown Court today of possession with intent to supply a quarter of a kilo of cocaine and two kilos of skunk cannabis.

Thompson was arrested following a Metropolitan police raid on his home on Malyons Road in December 2011 as part of Operation Trilogy, the Met’s gang disruption team. Police executed a search warrant at the property after receiving intelligence that he was dealing Class A and B drugs.

Police found 240 grams of cocaine along with mixing agents used to ‘cut’ the drug, as well as individual packages of cannabis, with a total value of £22,000.

Imitation firearms were also seized from Thompson’s home, though no charges were incurred.

Detective Constable Chris Lewis said: “The sentence Thompson has received reflects the serious nature of the crimes committed, and should serve as a warning to others that the Operation Trilogy Unit in Lewisham will relentlessly pursue anyone involved in organised criminality in our borough.”
