A London drug dealer who came to Suffolk to deliver drugs to customers in Felixstowe, Nacton, Holbrook and Ipswich has been jailed for three years.

Police were alerted after Majid Kudsi was seen dealing drugs from his car in a pub car park in Felixstowe and in the town’s Hintlesham Drive, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

As Kudsi was driving towards the A14 he lost control of his car and was arrested shortly afterwards, said Michael Crimp, prosecuting.

He gave a false name and when a Sat Nav in the car was checked it contained a number of addresses in Felixstowe, Nacton, Holbrook and Ipswich, said Mr Crimp.

When Kudsi was searched he was found to have 47 wraps of crack cocaine and heroin.

Kudsi, 25, of Rooney Road, London, admitted two offences of being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine, two offences of possessing heroin and cocaine with intent to supply and resisting a police officer and driving without insurance.

Marc Brown for Kudsi said his client had run up a £2,500 debt with his cannabis dealer and had agreed to deliver drugs to clear his debt.
