A teenager who flooded a housing estate in north Wembley with drugs has been jailed for four years.

Raheem Bourne, 19, was spotted supplying cocaine and cannabis on the Hirst Crescent Estate during an undercover police operation targeting drug dealers in the area.

Harrow Crown Court heard between June 18 and July 22 this year he was seen selling the drugs on at least five occasions.

He admitted supplying class A and B drugs and jailed on Tuesday.

Acting Detective Sergeant Kevin Harvey from Brent Police said: “I am pleased with the sentenced that has been handed down by the court. Those that were involved in the supply of drugs on this estate have blighted the lives of residents for a number of months.

I hope this sentence will serve as a warning that the police will pursue and bring to justice those who deal drugs on our estate.”
