A DRUG dealer has been jailed for two years for possessing and selling cocaine and heroin.

Diogo Vaz, 22, was caught with 68 wraps of the drugs stashed in his underpants after police arrested him in Kings Road, Brighton, on suspicion of possession of cannabis on March 20.

Vaz, unemployed and from Liverpool, was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court on Wednesday after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply heroin, possession with intent to supply cocaine and possession of cannabis.

Detective Constable Tom Duffy, of the Brighton investigations team, said: "We are committed to disrupting the supply of drugs within Brighton and Hove.

"This sentence shows that anyone convicted of dealing drugs in the city can expect a jail term.

"Vaz was of previous good character and this was his first conviction."
