A south Bermondsey man calling himself ‘Colombian Mitch’ has been jailed for dealing heroin and crack cocaine in Brighton.
Sussex Police found 24-year-old Bryan Godoy-Lojan, from Avondale Square north of the Old Kent Road, to be running a drug line in the south coast seaside town from July 2019-January 2020. Officers used telecoms analysis to link him to a phone he used to contact people who wanted to buy the Class A drugs.
Officers raided addresses in Brighton and found “significant quantities” of heroin and crack cocaine, as well as hundreds of pounds. Godoy-Lojan was charged with being concerned in the supply of heroin and being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine.
He pleaded guilty at Hove Crown Court on June 2 and was sentenced to three years in prison.
DC Mark Pinder said: “Drug dealing will absolutely not be tolerated in Brighton and Hove and every day our officers are out in uniform and plain clothes working to keep this city safe.
“We’re pleased the court has recognised the impact of the defendant’s actions on the local community by serving him with a significant custodial sentence.
“The investigation is a continued effort by Sussex Police to robustly target and dismantle County Lines that are adversely affecting our communities.
“Anyone with information about drug dealing is urged to report it to us online or by calling 101, so we can take action.”
