Constantin Ozansoy, 24, of Chingford Road, London, was sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court on 4 March after admitting two charges of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply at an earlier hearing at the same court.
Last October, an officer in an unmarked police vehicle saw a man she suspected of being a drug user loitering under the flyover near the tennis courts in Bournemouth Central Gardens.
She saw the defendant drive a Ford Focus into a car park in Branksome Wood Road, opposite where the man was waiting. The man then went over and got into Ozansoy’s car before leaving around 30 seconds later. Ozansoy drove off.
The following day the same officer was on patrol with a colleague in Branksome Wood Road when they saw a group of people waiting in the same area, including the man from the previous day.
The defendant arrived in the same vehicle and the man and a woman who were waiting both approached the car.
When the officers approached the vehicle, the defendant was seen in the driver’s seat with his hand down his trousers and a quantity of cash between his legs. He was in possession of a blue polythene bag containing what were suspected to be class A drugs.
The package was found to contain 28 wraps of heroin and 26 of crack cocaine, with an estimated street value of £540.
Police Constable Jo Morgan, from the Bournemouth South Neighbourhood Policing Team, said, “We are committed to tackling the supply of drugs in our community as we recognise the detrimental impact this has on all living in the area.
“This case is a demonstration of the proactive efforts our officers are making on a regular basis to tackle drug dealing and those involving in the supply chain.
“We will also continue to work with our partners and members of the community and are grateful for any intelligence and information received from members of the public that can help us target our resources in the most effective way.”
