Man jailed for drug supply offences

20 November 2020
A man found in possession of class A drugs when his car was stopped by officers in Poole has been jailed.

Muhammed Iqbal Vincent, aged 26 and of Columbia Road, Bournemouth, was sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court on Friday 20 November 2020 after admitting two charges of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

He was sentenced to three years in prison.

At around 10pm on Friday 20 July 2018, officers stopped his silver Audi TT on Blandford Road, Bournemouth.  A search was carried out and hidden in a green Smint tin officers found 29 wraps of what appeared to be class A drugs. The wraps were later analysed with 19 found to contain crack cocaine and 10 containing heroin.

The defendant was arrested and officers subsequently carried out a search of his then address in Astbury Avenue, Poole, where they found more than £5,000 in cash.

A number of Mobile phones were seized from the defendant and submitted for data analysis. Messages were found on the phones that appeared to relate to the supply of drugs.

Detective Sergeant Chris Griffin, of Dorset Police, said: “We recognise the detrimental impact the supply of class A drugs and related drugs activity has on our communities and we are committed to doing all we can to disrupt the work of those who act as dealers. 

"This excellent proactive work by our traffic officer identified Vincent as having a role in the supply of Class A Drugs and ultimately removed quantity of illegal drugs off the streets."
