A drug dealer from Willesden who swallowed wraps of cocaine and heroin when he was stopped by police has been jailed.
Driss Dekhissi, of Linacre Road, took FOUR days to pass the class A drugs through his system after he carried out the potentially fatal action.
Oxford Crown Court heard officers retrieved the drugs after the 21-year-old used an ‘evidential toilet’ following his arrest and appearance in court.
Dekhissi was spotted trying to hide something when his car was stopped by police in an unmarked vehicle in Didcot, Oxfordshire on July 14 this year.
A search of the silver Rover 75 uncovered four wraps of heroin and Dekhissi was charged the next day with one count of possession with intent to supply heroin, as well as two further counts of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs on March 31.
He attended court on July 16 and was remanded in custody where he passed through the wraps using the special toilet at Loddon Valley police station on July 18.
The wraps were seized by officers and tests showed that they contained heroin and cocaine.
Dekhissi admitted possession with intent to supply heroin and was jailed for three years.
Det Con Charles Boshell, investigating officer, said: “I am pleased with the outcome of this trial, which has resulted in a prolific drug dealer being taken off the streets of Didcot and prevented class A drugs being dealt to users in our community.
“This case shows that drug dealing offences can happen outside of city centres, and that we are committed to stopping this happening wherever it takes place.
“We will continue to work hard to ensure that drug dealers like Dekhissi are prevented from operating in the Thames Valley.”
