A Beckenham crack dealer was jailed for eight years at Croydon Crown Court on Monday.
A three month investigation found Eugene Donegan, 44, of Upper Elmers End Road and his accomplice Michael Gilead, 48, of Thornton Heath, were ringleaders supplying the drug across London.
Both were jailed for conspiracy to supply crack cocaine and sentenced following a two-week trial.
Donegan was the head of the network that he operated from his home. He also received five years for possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply, with the sentence to run concurrently.
His brother, Anthony Anderson, 34, of Beckenham, was accused of conspiracy to supply crack cocaine but was acquitted.
Gilead also received three and a half years for crimes including handling stolen goods, also to run concurrently.
