Drug dealer jailed for five years

Kabo Masalila, aged 27, of Cherry Avenue in Manchester pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply and dangerous driving at Chester Crown Court and was told he will serve four years and six months.  

On the morning of Tuesday 29 January 2019 officers made attempts to stop Masalila after he entered the car park of a gym at Handforth Dean Retail Park near Wilmslow, Cheshire. Masalila refused to stop, locked himself inside the black Honda Civic and a short pursuit took place in along the A34 Bypass towards Wilmslow. 

During the pursuit Masalila threw parcels of heroin, cocaine and a mobile phone out of the car window. When he met heavy traffic his vehicle collided into a hedge before coming to a stop. He was then detained and taken into custody.

Detective Sergeant Jon Ryder, of Macclesfield Local Policing Unit, said: “Masalila not only refused to stop for police but he tried to conceal high class drugs along with his mobile phone while driving at speed to avoid being caught. This could have led to a serious collision after he drove dangerously without any thought or care for those around him. After admitting to both his crimes we have seen justice served.”
