HARLOW: Drug dealer found with 42 wraps is jailed; 06/09/2017

A DRUG dealer found with 42 wraps of Class A drugs hidden in his boxer shorts has been jailed for three years.

Acting on information, officers from the West Operation Raptor team searched a house in The Dashes, Harlow on Sunday June 25 this year.

Once inside they found 19-year-old Jeff Pindi-Camara asleep on a sofa. They searched him and found he was concealing 42 wraps of crack and heroin in his boxer shorts. He was also found with cannabis and cash.

Pindi-Camara of Blackshaw Road, London was charged with two counts of possessing a Class A drug with intent to supply and possessing a Class B drug.

He admitted both charges at Chelmsford Crown Court and was jailed for three years. The court also ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the drugs and cash.

Following the sentencing Sgt James Paget of the West Operation Raptor team said: “We welcome yet another positive result from the court.

“This sentence reflects the seriousness with which Class A drug dealing is treated by both Essex Police and our criminal justice partners.

“Those involved in the supply of Class A drugs thrive on exploitation and perpetuate lives of misery for drug users and their families, but also for their wider public, whose communities are blighted by the effects of drug use.

“As shown in these cases, it is common for the supply of Class A drugs to go hand in hand with the routine carrying of weapons and the use of violence.

“Operation Raptor officers are on the street every day and are tireless in their pursuit of Class A drug dealers. It is only a matter of time until they are caught and are subjected to the full weight of the law.”


Essex Police set up Operation Raptor teams in the North, South and West of the county to tackle drug and gang-related crime.
