A LONDON man has been jailed for dealing drugs in Hampshire.

Thomas Okumu, 25, was arrested by officers after being found at the home of a vulnerable person with drugs worth £4,560.

Okumu, of Barncroft Close, Uxbridge, was found guilty of being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin, as well as possessing criminal property.

He was detained following the discovery in Stubbington Avenue, Portsmouth, on October 1.

Detective Chief Inspector Nick Heelan said: “Our Drugs Related Harm team and other officers work hard to safeguard vulnerable people in our city and to make it a hostile place for county lines drug dealers.

“This is another good result for Portsmouth; drugs have been taken off of our streets, a drug dealer is behind bars and a vulnerable person has been safeguarded.

“I hope this reassures our local community that this remains a priority for us and that we are continuing to disrupt drug dealing in Portsmouth.”
