A drug dealer who used several mobile phones and coded languages in his messages to avoid being caught has been jailed after he arrested in Marylebone.
George Dib, 43, was spotted behaving suspiciously outside Baker Street station by an off duty police officer and was found in possession of a large quantity of drugs and money when searched.
More drugs were discovered by officers when they subsequently searched his home in White City following his arrest in March last year.
They also found a number of mobile phones containing the coded messages.
The total street value of the diazepam tablets, cannabis resin, ketamine, MDMA and cocaine seized from Dib is estimated at £965.
