A pair of drug dealers have been jailed for their involvement in a county lines operation. 

Adnan Mayanja and Asher Robinson, both from Newham, were found guilty of transporting and supplying drugs. 

A joint investigation by the Met Police and Sussex Police revealed that the ‘Bingo’ line was supplying crack cocaine and heroin to vulnerable people in London and East Sussex. 

When officers raided 26-year-old Robinson’s home in Sherrard Road, Forest Gate in June 2023 he tried to escape and threw away mobile phones and a driving licence. 

One phone was later found and it contained evidence he was involved in the ‘Bingo’ line. 

Officers also found £1,600 in cash. 

Mayanja, 26, of Walton Road, Little Ilford, was arrested on the same day. 

Both were charged with being concerned in the supply of heroin and crack cocaine, while Mayanja was also charged with possession of criminal property. 

They each pleaded guilty to the charges in July last year and were sentenced at Lewes Crown Court last month.

Mayanja was jailed for five years and seven months, with Robinson locked up for three years. 

Investigator Julian Stokes said: “People like Mayanja and Robinson target and exploit vulnerable people in our communities.

"They are responsible for bringing harmful and dangerous drugs into our towns and this sentencing demonstrates that this will not be tolerated in Sussex."
