Abdul Ahmed, Adrian Clarke and Donald Junior Keane among Soho drug dealers jailed
Two men from Tottenham and one from Enfield were among 32 drug dealers sentenced to more than 60 years for supplying on the streets of Soho.
Abdul Ahmed, 37 of Rycroft Way, Tottenham, pleaded guilty to one count of supplying class A drugs and was ordered to serve two years and 12 months in jail.
He was also given a five-year anti-social behaviour order which prohibits him from returning the area.
Adrian Clarke, 38, of Montague Road, Tottenham, pleaded guilty to offering to supply class A drugs and is due to be sentenced on September 18.
Donald Junior Keane, 35, of Fairbank Close, Enfield, pleaded guilty to one count of theft and was given an eight-month suspended sentence.
He was also given an ASBO which lasts for five years and bans him from returning to Soho.
The arrests were made as part of the second stage of a Westminster Police investigation to find out more about the supply of heroin and crack cocaine in and around Soho.
All of the defendants who were jailed pleaded guilty to the charges against them and 28 of the 32 people were sentenced at Southwark Crown Court between August 12 and 16.
The other four were sentenced between May and July 2013.
Westminster Police Commander Alison Newcomb said: "Drug dealing on the streets of the West End or in any part of London cannot and will not be tolerated.
“Put quite simply, if you are coming to the West End to buy or sell drugs, you need to think again.
“You will be targeted, you will be arrested and you will be charged and put before the court.”
