A man who was caught dealing drugs in Bournemouth town centre has been jailed.

Kemar Jordan, 22 and of no fixed abode, was sentenced to 32 months in prison on Thursday 30 January 2020. This cam after pleading guilty at a previous hearing to possession of class A drugs with intent to supply. 

Police Constable Stuart Grant, of Bournemouth police, said: “We are determined to prevent people like Kemar Jordan from dealing drugs in our community.”

On Thursday 27 September 2018 in Bournemouth town centre, two officers were on cycle patrol when they noticed Jordan and two other men loitering in the Lower Gardens. Here they witnessed two known drug users approach the trio and then walk off with Jordan.

Following this, one of the officers alerted the town centre CCTV operators who continued to monitor the group. During an exchange in which a man handed over a £20 note to Jordan the pair walked out of sight towards St Peter’s Church.

Jordan later returned to the Lower Gardens and went into the public toilets. He was then detained by officers and taken into custody for a full search. During the search officers found a package which was identified by Forensic examination as 34 wraps of crack cocaine and eight wraps of heroin. Also approximately £400 was seized. 

Jordan was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and was subsequently charged. 

PC Stuart Grant added: “We will do everything we can to apprehend offenders such as Jordan and bring them before the court.”
