A drug dealer banned from Cambridgeshire was found with more than 130 wraps of heroin worth £1,500 hidden in his bottom.

Joshua Obah was seen by police officers who recognised him and knew of a court bail condition which banned him from entering Cambridgeshire again. 

Obah was followed into a block of flats in Perse Way, Cambridge in September last year where they came across an open front door to a flat. 

Officers then saw the 25-year-old counting money and handling a bundle of heroin wraps. 

Cash and drugs were seized along with cannabis found in Obah’s sock and a mobile phone. 

Obah, of Hazelmere Road, Northolt in Greater London, was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court, jailed for five-and-a-half years after admitting possession with intent to supply class A drugs. 

He also admitted to possession of criminal property.

Sgt Paul Street said: “Obah is a county lines drug dealer who was transporting class A drugs from London to Cambridge to exploit vulnerable people. 

“Drugs can have a devastating effect on the lives and communities of Cambridgeshire and we will continue to do all we can to bring offenders before the courts”.
