A drug dealer who was found with a black bag of 107 wraps of Class A drugs and two knives in Cambridge has been locked up.

Abdullahi Dable, 19, was spotted acting suspiciously by an off-duty police officer close to Christ’s Pieces at about 7pm on August 7.

The off duty officer contacted colleagues who arrested Dable and seized a black bag with 107 wraps of Class A drugs.

Seventy four of the wraps contained crack cocaine and 33 heroin.

When Dable was searched officers also discovered two knives.

Dable, of Swanscombe Road in London, admitted possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply and possession of a bladed article in a public place.

He was sentenced to a year and six months for each of the drug offences, to run concurrently, and three months for the bladed article offence to run consecutively, at Peterborough Crown Court today (October 2).

The total sentence of a year and nine months will be served in a young offenders institution.

PC Tom Guy said: “We are working hard to combat the issue of people travelling to our county to deal drugs.

“These substances devastate lives and cause misery for our communities. Often drug dealing and violence go hand in hand, making it vital that we catch the perpetrators and bring them to justice.”

Anyone with information on drug dealing should call police on 101 or visit www.cambs.police.uk/report.
