A drug dealer has been jailed after stashing wraps of heroin in his underpants.

Mundri Mohamed was sentenced to two years in prison after admitting possessing the 13 wraps of class A drugs with the intent to supply.

He was arrested by officers on suspicion of drug dealing outside Brunswick Place in Hove in March this year.

The 19-year-old from Hammersmith in London appeared at Lewes Crown Court for sentencing, where he was jailed.

The Argus:

Brighton investigations team Detective Constable Tom Duffy said: "I would like to thank the member of public who contacted the police after being offered drugs by Mohamed.

“Their quick actions mean there is one less drug dealer on the streets of Brighton and Hove."
