Singh was arrested on 25 February 2020 after officers from Southampton’s High Harm team carried out a proactive stop and search in Proctor Close, Southampton and located a quantity of Class A and B drugs in his trouser pockets.
This led officers to search an address in Tatwin Crescent where they located further drugs and items relating to drug supply.
The drugs located were subsequently examined and confirmed to be heroin, crack cocaine and cannabis, with a total street value of £3990.
Singh was charged and pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs (heroin and crack cocaine) and possession of Class B drugs (cannabis) on 26 March 2021.
On Tuesday, Jami Lee Singh appeared at Southampton Crown Court and was jailed for 28 months.
