The investigation began after officers stopped Pereira in Tottenham on Tuesday, September 27.

He tried to make off but officers caught and detained him. They found him to be in possession of several wraps of class A drugs and a phone.

After downloading data from the phone, officers were able to identify Pereira was working with Ankrah and Moata to supply drugs. The two older men were identified as the custodians of the Mikey drugs line.

Moata was found by police on October 2022 in Leicester, where he was arrested and brought back to London.

Sergeant Nick Stylianou, from the Specialist Crime North Proactive Team, said: “This proactive operation identified that the group were dealing class A drugs over a ten-month period, living lavish lifestyles,funded by their criminality.

“The extensive work involved in the case demonstrates our commitment to tackling drug supply, which is heavily linked to exploitation and serious violence leading to untold misery in London.”
