A heroin dealer has been put behind bars for attempting to ply his trade in Braintree.

Mohammed Choudry, 21, of Regent Street, Handsworth, has been jailed for two years, eight months for possession of heroin with intent to supply and possession of cannabis, DMT and cocaine.

The sentence at Ipswich Crown Court on April 26 follows guilty pleas from Choudry on April 3.

At around 1am on December 29, police received reports of suspicious behaviour in St Johns Avenue, Braintree.

Officers attended and detained Choudry for a drug search.

A spokesman for Essex Police said Choudry became “agitated and attempted to resist officers by pushing and moving a way”.

Choudry was found to be carrying cannabis, one package containing cocaine, four plastic bags containing DMT and 21 packages of heroin.

Investigating officer Pc James Pamment, of Operation Raptor North, said: “Choudry’s agitation just increased our suspicions and we performed a drug search, revealing evidence of drug use and supply.

“We seized two phones and one of these showed evidence of Choudry’s involvement in drug supply.

“Thanks to one person’s vigilance, a drug dealer with intentions to harm our communities by delivering drugs has been locked in a prison cell.”
