An Ipswich-based drug dealer has been sentenced to five years in prison.
Idris Farah, aged 22, of Luther Road in Ipswich, was charged with possession with intent to supply Class A crack cocaine and also heroin.
Farah was searched and arrested by officers in Fuchsia Lane in June 2014 and found with over 200 wraps of crack and heroin, with an approximate street value of £3,000. He pleaded guilty at Ipswich Crown Court on the first day of his trial in December before being sentenced on Tuesday 20 January.
Ipswich Policing Commander, Superintendent Louisa Pepper welcomed the sentence.
"This sends a clear message to drug dealers who operate in Suffolk. This activity will not be tolerated and you will be put behind bars for your actions. I also hope that this result reassures the local community that we are targeting the issue of drugs within Ipswich.
Farah was also sentenced for two counts of possession with intent to supply while on remand in Norwich Prison. It comes after a targeted search was carried out by prison staff in September when 125 wraps of crack cocaine and a wrap of heroin were recovered.
