Three Lower Clapton drug dealers – including one who hid £2,000 of crack and heroin inside his own body – have been jailed for a total 20 years.
Oluchi Ochereobia, 22, of Mandeville Street, Calvyn Senna Green, 25, of Keyworth Close and Jaivon Prince, 20, of Daubney Road were caught out after the Met discovered a network operating out of London to supply drugs in Norwich.
Ochereobia was running the network with his brother Kenechi, who was based in Cardiff.
Green was arrested in September last year at Ipswich station, on a London-bound train from Norwich. He was found with £2,500 cash, as well as mobile phones that had been used to communicate with Kenechi Ochereobia and those he was supplying the drugs to.
Prince was arrested at Liverpool Street station shortly after. He admitted having two packets of drugs concealed in his body and was taken to hospital, where hundreds of wraps of heroin and cocaine worth about £2,000 were recovered. On a search of his home, cops found heroin and crack cocaine worth £20,000.
All were charged with conspriracy to supply Class A drugs. Prince pleaded guilty, while Ochereobia and Green were convicted after a trial. They were sentenced at Blackfriars Crown Court on Friday.
Ochereobia was sentenced to eight years, and Green to five years and six months. Prince was sentenced to six years and four months.
