Three men from Manor Park, Ilford and Clapton who were part of a drugs line in Essex have been jailed.
Marcus Moses-Cairnes, of Rixsen Road in Manor Park, Garth Tulloch, of Framlingham Close in Clapton and Ahamefuna Anukam of Iris Close in Ilford ran the Tommy line in Southend.
A court heard Moses-Cairns was in possession of the drugs, Tulloch held the drugs line phone and Anukam was the car driver, with the three men working together from a house in Eastwoodberry Crescent, Southend.
The trio were seen carrying out a suspected drug deal from a car in Leigh-on-Sea on December 4 last year, before another suspected deal took place in Benfleet a few hours later.
Officers from the Essex Police operation raptor team stopped the car and arrested them.
Moses-Cairnes was found with 19 wraps of cocaine on him and police found more cocaine and cannabis during a search of the house in Southend.
Drugs with a total street value of about £9,500 were seized.
