A Holloway drug dealer has been jailed for nearly six years – after dodging bail and being arrested a second time with even more drugs.

Ahmed Ahmed, of Crossley Street, this week at Chelmsford Crown Court admitted four counts of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply, one of money laundering, and one of possessing a class B drug.

He was first arrested in Harlow after being spotted “acting suspiciously”, Essex Police said.

They searched him and found 16 rocks of heroin and crack cocaine, as well as £221 in cash. He was bailed, but didn’t show at Harlow police station on October 9 as planned.

So cops went to collect him, and found two packages of crack cocaine and heroin as well as £240 in cash.

On Wednesday he was jailed for five years and eight months.

Sgt James Paget said: “After failing to answer bail, he clearly thought we wouldn’t go and find him.

“We not only found him, but we found more drugs.”
