Drug dealer sentenced to three years in prison

An Acton man has been sent to prison for three years after being caught dealing heroin and crack cocaine.

Steven Hue, 49, of Horn Lane W3 was sentenced on Friday 4 December after he pleaded guilty to four counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs at Isleworth Crown Court.

At 4.30pm on Monday 31 August, officers from the Violent Crime Taskforce came across a small group of men who appeared to be dealing drugs in Acton Park. The officers saw what looked like drugs wrapped in clingfilm in Hue’s hands. Hue then threw a bag over a fence, which one officer retrieved.

Hue was detained and searched. Officers found 40 wraps of crack cocaine, 40 wraps of heroin, around £80 in cash, a Nokia mobile phone and a wrap of cannabis hidden in his left sock.

He was charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs on 1 September, as well as with two further counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, in relation to another offence in May 2020.

Hue answered with “no comment” to all questions put to him during his interview.

Officers tackle drugs and violence ‘every day’

Detective Sergeant Mark Kelleher from the Violent Crime Taskforce said“The Violent Crime Taskforce was formed to disrupt criminality caused by those intent on committing acts of serious violence, which often stem from the supply of controlled drugs.

“The strong evidence that the investigation team gathered against Hue resulted in him pleading guilty to these serious offences.

“Officers are tackling drugs and violence every day. The message should be very clear, we are out day and night using lawful tactics, including stop and search, to keep London safe.”

The Police urge anyone who may have information on violent and drug related crimes to contact them immediately.
