A drug dealer has been jailed for two-and-a-half years after being caught in Ipswich.
Charles Jekenya, 20, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Wednesday to be sentenced for possessing cannabis with intent to supply in Ipswich on April 5, 2020, and breaching a suspended sentence.
Jekenya, of Cauldwell Hall Road, Ipswich, was also being sentenced for possessing class A and class B drugs with intent to supply. These offences were in the Nottingham area.
