Leamington drug dealer behind bars

A LEAMINGTON man has been jailed after admitting drugs possession with intent to supply.

Hudhayfah Bernard, of Marston Close, was jailed for two and a half years after pleading guilty to the charges.

Officers arrested the 30-year-old after witnessing a suspected drugs deal in Trinity Street last year.

And after searching his car, police seized a significant amount of crack cocaine and heroin and cash.

A phone taken from Bernard had been used for drug dealing with messages between him and a number of others over the previous two months.

Following further investigation, Bernard was charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Detective Sergeant Sarah Wolsey said: “As a result of the quick response and good detective work, Bernard is off the streets and behind bars.

“The misery drugs can cause is well known not just to those who take them but to those in the local community as well.

“We will proactively target people we believe to be involved in drugs and use the powers we have to make sure their activity is disrupted.

“I hope Bernard’s sentence acts as a deterrent to others and goes some way to reassuring the public we will thoroughly investigate all drugs activity so we can bring offenders to justice and protect our communities from harm.”
