A man has been jailed for almost three years for dealing Class A drugs in Norwich.

Hersi Ahmed, 25 and from London, was arrested by officers from the Norwich Neighbourhood Policing Team at an address in Lawson Road on Tuesday 17 October 2017 following information from members of the public about local drug dealing in the area.

During a search of the premises cash and mobile phones were seized and Ahmed was also found to be in possession of a number of wraps of Class A drugs.

Ahmed pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug at an earlier hearing and was sentenced to 32 months in prison at Norwich Crown Court on Friday15 March 2019.

Sergeant Tony Lester said: “I hope this sentencing reassures the local community that the Norwich Neighbourhood Policing Team will respond robustly to reports of drug dealing in the city under Operation Gravity and we will seek to secure lengthy jail sentences for those caught breaking the law.”
