I have received very reliable information concerning the activities of Dexter Dillas, Ted Ming and Calvin ‘Ealdy’ Hansey.
Ming owns a house at the junction of Lighthouse Hill & Crown Lane, Soton. He lives in the upstairs apartment and Dillas occupies the lower. The informant has seen Dillas and Larry (Larry Ebbin ?) actually selling over the wall on Lighthouse Lane to passing motorists. Until just over a year ago Federal Express were delivering to the house 2 or 3 times a day. This has now stopped but Hansey is now visiting the house daily in the Magazine Distibutors van which he drives. The informants wife does not work and is able to monitor this traffic regularly.
The Dillas apartment was searched on 23/3/89 and local gossip has it that Heroin work $40,000 was flushed before access was gained. The house has been remodelled on the inside and the informant states that there are 2 staircases which link the 2 apartments and they are concealed behind closet walls.
It now transpires that shortly after I left the area at 2200 hours on Friday 23/2/90, Hansey arrived in the van with five boxes. 1 box was placed in the rear of Dillas’s car and the other 4 in the lower apt. The informant heard banging and hammering from the apartment as though panelling was being removed & replaced.
D.S.Gordon has observed Hansey driving his van to & from the airport and has noticed that Ted Ming is a frequent passenger .He suspects the probability of shirments being concealed within the magazines which arrive air freight. The informant is convinced that Ming is involved with Dillas because he could not avoid noticing the traffic when selling is taking place.
Informant will monitor the situation and report volume of activity. He is willing for his house to be used for observations, and it affords a clear view of the front and side access to the house in question.
