Main article content
Caught red handed trying to flee from officers via a first-floor window, a prolific drug dealer is facing the next two and a half years behind bars.
Cherno Jallow, 20, of Rother Road, Farnborough was sentenced on Friday, 24 February at Guildford Crown Court to two and a half years in prison for possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
On Wednesday, 1 February officers conducted a search warrant at Jallow’s home address where he was found to be barricaded in his bedroom. Entry was gained and he was caught trying to dispose of crucial evidence while attempting to escape from the first-floor window. Following a further search of the bedroom, officers found a large quantity of class A crack cocaine, several mobile phones, a large amount of cash, dealer lists and weapons. Jallow was arrested for being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.
Jallow pleaded guilty at Court and was convicted for being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, possession of criminal property and possession of cannabis.
