TWO drug dealers have been jailed after being caught with crack cocaine and heroin.
Wilker Amaro, 22, of Provost Street, London, and Hailton Vazcontreiras, 26, of Salisbury Road, Harringay, London, were both found with the drugs in St Helen’s Parade, Southsea.
Detectives from the new Portsmouth drug squad, set up in January, arrested the men on February 23.
Now they have both been jailed for a combined total of six years.
Chief inspector Jim Pegler said: ‘Police in Portsmouth, including our new drugs-related harm team, are continuing to disrupt and tackle drug-dealing in the city.
‘I hope these results reassure the local community that we will not tolerate drug-dealing in Portsmouth.
‘We continue to work with our partners to restrict the supply of drugs and reduce the demand for them in Portsmouth and make it a hostile place for drug dealers.’
Amaro had been charged with having 35 wraps of crack cocaine and 38 wraps of heroin. He was jailed for 42 months.
Vazcontreiras was charged with having 36 wraps of heroin and 53 wraps of crack cocaine. He was jailed for 30 months.
They both admitted two charges each of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
A judge jailed them at Portsmouth Crown Court on Monday.
Separately, Bradley Odjoma, pictured left, was also jailed.
The street dealer, 19, of HMP Feltham, was jailed for 40 months.
He was found in Mongtomerie Road, Southsea, on May 10 last year.
The court heard he had 38 wraps of crack cocaine and 20 of heroin. Odjoma admitted two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
The court heard he was found with £270.50 in cash and with three mobiles phones. Odjoma had gotten into debt over cannabis and turned to dealing drugs.
