AN Ipswich man is facing the prospect of a lengthy jail term today after admitting to dealing Class A drugs.

Nurul Islam, of Ashcroft Road, pleaded guilty to dealing cocaine and ecstasy at a hearing at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court. He also admitted possession of a small quantity of cannabis.

Magistrates heard that police seized drugs with a value of approximately £13,000 from the 26-year-old.

David Taylor, prosecuting, told the court that Islam was initially stopped by police at Milton Street, Ipswich on August 17. Both cocaine and ecstasy were found in his car.

More drugs were found by police when Islam's home address was searched later that day.

In total the police seized 878 MDMA (ecstasy tablets) and 20.6 grams of cocaine.

At the court hearing Islam pleaded guilty to five drugs charges.

He admitted that between May and August this year he had supplied cocaine. He also admitted supplying ecstasy between the same dates.

Islam also accepted that on August 17 he had possessed both cocaine and ecstasy with the intention of supplying it. On the same date he admitted to having a quantity of cannabis for his personal use.

Mr Taylor said: "In interview he admitted that he had these drugs with the intention of supplying them and he went beyond that and said for the last three months he had been supplying ecstasy and cocaine."

Islam's defence solicitor Ian Divine made no representations.

Magistrates committed the case to Ipswich Crown Court for sentencing.

Islam was released on conditional bail to appear at the crown court at a date to be arranged.
