A man has been jailed for more than three and a half years for drug supply offences in Bournemouth.
Chay Maguire-Baker, aged 24, and of London, was sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court on Friday 8 March 2019 to 40 months in prison after admitting offences of possessing crack cocaine with intent to supply and acquiring, using or possessing criminal property.
He was also sentenced to a further three months in prison for resisting or obstructing a constable in the execution of their duty and failing to surrender to custody, making the total sentence 43 months in jail.
At around 8.15pm on Wednesday 9 May 2018 officers on patrol noticed the defendant on the phone in Wimborne Road in Winton.
The officers recognised Maguire-Baker as someone suspected to be involved in the supply of class A drugs and as they approached him he made off from them.
Maguire-Baker was detained by officers in nearby Latimer Road where he became aggressive and struggled to escape.
The officers searched him and found 11 wraps of suspected class A drugs in his jacket pocket and around £500 in cash in his back trouser pocket.
The wraps were tested and found to contain crack cocaine, with an estimated street value of £110.
