A Southampton man has been jailed for 28 months for drugs offences.
Jami Lee Singh, aged 35, of Burke Drive, Southampton was sentenced for possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin and possession of cannabis at Southampton Crown Court on Tuesday, 27 April.
Singh was arrested on 25 February 2020 after officers from Southampton’s High Harm team carried out a proactive stop and search in Proctor Close, Southampton and located a quantity of Class A and B drugs in his trouser pockets.
This led officers to search an address in Tatwin Crescent where they located further drugs and items relating to drug supply.
The drugs located were subsequently examined and confirmed to be heroin, crack cocaine and cannabis, with a total street value of £3990.
Singh was charged and pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs (heroin and crack cocaine) and possession of Class B drugs (cannabis) at Southampton Crown Court on 26 March 2021.
On Tuesday, 27 April, Jami Lee Singh was jailed for 28 months.
Inspector Hayley O’Grady from the Southampton High Harm team said: “This is an excellent result following a proactive stop and search.
“Our High Harm and Neighbourhoods teams continue to ensure Southampton is a hostile environment for drug dealers to operate.
“We are committed to doing everything we can to tackle drugs and associated crime in our city and keep our communities safe. I hope this reassures our local community that this remains a priority for us and that we are continuing to disrupt drug dealing in Southampton.”
