A drug dealer who was caught with £4,000 worth of cocaine in a New Year’s Eve police raid on his Eynesbury home has been jailed.
On Monday (December 9), Imran Hussain, of Howitts Lane, was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court to four years in prison after admitting a string of possession with intent to supply charges.
The court heard how officers raided the 20-year-old’s home after reports of suspicious activity at the address.
As well as the cocaine, they also discovered £1,500 of cannabis. Hussain was arrested and charged with three counts of possession with intent to supply drugs, two for class B drugs and one for class A.
In May, he was caught with drugs again, this time when he was in a car being driven by James Picking in St Neots. Several bags of cannabis and cocaine were found under a back seat. He was again arrested and charged with four counts of possession with intent to supply drugs, two each for class A and B.
Hussain was caught with drugs at his home again in July after police went there on a separate matter and was charged with a further count of intent to supply class B drugs.
Picking, 19, of High Street, Graveley, was found to have offered to supply cocaine to a woman via a social networking website. He admitted offering to supply cannabis and cocaine. He was given a 12-month sentence, suspended for 18 months, given a six-month curfew and ordered to carry out 80 hours’ unpaid work.
Detective Constable James Howard said: “This sentence should serve as a warning to those who chose to deal drugs in Cambridgeshire that the law will eventually catch up with you and you will face the consequences.”
