A 27-year-old man has been jailed for four years for possession with intent to supply class A drugs, after being caught by officers in NW10 in April.
Fenan Michael, of no fixed abode, was sentenced at Harrow Crown Court on Monday, September 15 after being found guilty.
On April 5 at about 7pm, plain clothes officers were in Wendover Road, NW10 when they spotted Michael coming out of an address. On seeing the officers, Michael fled back inside the property and was detained by officers.
Two packages of crack cocaine and two packages of heroin where found on the floor next to him. Whilst officers were searching him they found that Michael had concealed a cling film wrap containing 20 individually wrapped packages of crack cocaine and five individually wrapped packages of heroin in his mouth.
Officers were able to stop Michael from swallowing the package, preventing him from harming himself. He was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and charged on 16 April.
DC Simon Cormack from the Priority Crime Unit said: “I am pleased with this sentenced. Michael has been a huge burden to the Brent area and this is an excellent result for the Brent Community. This type of crime will not be tolerated and I hope this sentence will act as a deterrent for others.”
