Taverham drug dealer sentenced
A 25-year-old man has been sentenced to 16 weeks imprisonment for dealing drugs in Taverham.
Oscar Hambrook, of Nightingale Drive, appeared at Norwich Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday 8 May 2019) after pleading guilty to drug offences at an earlier hearing.
Hambrook admitted possession with intent to supply cannabis, being concerned in the supply of cannabis and was also dealt with for being in breach of a suspended sentence.
The drug charges related to offences in Taverham between Friday 27 July and Tuesday 28 August 2018.
The court heard Hambrook, who lives opposite an infant school, had been involved in several incidents witnessed by parents, teachers and pupils.
Sergeant Angie Youd from the local policing team, welcomed the sentence. She said: “Hambrook’s drug dealing behaviour had a big impact on the local community, causing concern and affecting the quality of life for residents.
“This is a welcomed result in a case which demonstrates the impact illegal drug activity can have on local communities.”
