A drug dealer has been sentenced to two and half years in prison after police discovered cannabis and cocaine in a raid.

Jared Bell, 21, of Hide Road, Harrow, pleaded guilty two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and one count of possession of criminal property.

Harrow Police found cannabis, powder that appeared to be cocaine in wraps of paper and cling film, and substantial amount of cash during a rain in April.

Bell was arrested and the money, more than £1,700, was seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Some of the notes were examined by the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Bank of England and were found to be fake, leading to Bell being charged with possession of counterfeit money.

Laboratory results also found the cocaine seized during the raid was genuine. It was given an estimated street value of £1,200.

Bell was sentenced to 30 months in prison at Harrow Crown Court on Tuesday August 19 after pleading guilty.

PC Fran Shepherd of the Wealdstone Proactive Unit said: "Harrow is even safer now after this conviction and demonstrates the commitment to which Harrow Police will go to, to rid the streets of those intent on breaking the law.”
