Bridgwater county lines suppliers jailed
Two men who brought class A drugs to Bridgwater from London have been jailed. The pair were arrested as part of a joint investigation between Avon & Somerset Police and the Metropolitan Police.
They both appeared in court in September and pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine. Ubayd Jimale, 23, and Omar Bailey, 30, were involved in transporting drugs Bridgwater between December 2020 and March 2021.
Jimale, of Watford Road in Wembley, was sentenced on Friday 8 April at Taunton Crown Court. He received four years and six months for his role in leading the operation. Bailey, of Swinderby Road in Wembley, was jailed for three years and six months.
DS Jonathan Atkin said: “This conviction and sentence is the result of hard work and dedication by the investigating officer PC Howard Brown with support from other officers in Avon and Somerset and those working for the Metropolitan Police. It sends a clear message that those individuals involved in transporting harmful drugs into our cities, towns and villages will be brought to justice.”
