A drug dealer from Blackheath has been jailed for possession with intent to supply crack cocaine.
Adnan Noor, 26, (13.11.91) of Liskeard Gardens, SE3 was arrested on 29 January after he ran from Greenwich Gangs Unit officers in Lord Warwick Street, Woolwich.
When caught by a police officer, he fought with the officer and wrapped his legs around the officer's neck causing minor injuries. Noor was safely detained when other officers arrived at the scene.
A package that had been discarded by Noor as he ran from police was recovered and found to contain 65 rocks of crack cocaine.
The following day, Noor was charged with possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and with obstructing a constable.
On 1 February, Noor pleaded guilty to both offences. He was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court on Wednesday, 21 February, to two years and nine months' imprisonment.
PC Greg Underdown of the Greenwich Gangs Unit said: "The supply and distribution of crack cocaine and heroin within the community fuels violent crime and ruins the lives of the vulnerable people who use it.
"The gangs unit in Greenwich work tirelessly to tackle this activity.
"I urge the public to report drug and gang activity because, as this prison sentence shows, we will take action and put callous and manipulative drug dealers before the courts."
