According to Surrey Police, Mark Nye of Yeoman Drive, Stanwell was stopped by officers in Stanwell on 11 February and was detained after trying to discard class A drugs and the two mobile phones he had on him.

Upon being stopped, Mr Nye gave false details, telling officers his name was ‘Conor’ suggesting he was Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor.

Mark also had several hundred business cards which he used to front his drug dealing with the name ‘McGregor Enterprise’ written on the front and ‘Best drops in Surrey’ on the back.a close up of a device: Mark also had several hundred business cards which he used to front his drug dealing with the name ‘Mcgregor Enterprise’ written on the front.

Police officers analysed Mark’s two mobile phones and found hundreds of messages in relation to his drug-dealing activity.

Commenting on the arrest, Investigating Officer PC McGill said: ‘A search of the address Mark was staying at revealed a large amount of boric acid, a cutting agent which is used by dealers to cut drugs and can have serious health implications for users themselves.

Officers also found a large cleaver readily accessible by his bed.a police car parked on the side of a road: Police officers analysed Mark’s two mobile phones and found hundreds of messages in relation to his drug-dealing activity.

‘Thanks to the work of our proactive drugs teams, we have taken yet another dealer off our streets and prevented Mark from causing further harm to the victims of his crimes.’
