A 19-year-old Londoner who ran a County Line targeting vulnerable young people in Great Yarmouth has been jailed for four years.
Omar Salah, of Marshall Street in London, was sentenced on Thursday, January 21, at Norwich Crown Court after admitting supplying crack cocaine and heroin at an earlier hearing.
The court heard how Salah was arrested in Market Row in Great Yarmouth on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, following a joint operation between the Norfolk Police County Lines Team and the Metropolitan Police.
On arrest Salah had a mobile phone suspected to be linked to a County Lines phone line.
The following day, on Wednesday, September 2, officers searched his home in London and found a number of mobile phones, also suspected of being linked to the same County Line.
Analysis revealed Salah was responsible for controlling the ‘Spyder’ line in Great Yarmouth between April 2020 and September 2020.
PC Michael LeFevre from the County Lines Team said: "This latest sentencing under Op Orochi demonstrates our ongoing commitment to targeting those controlling County Lines in Norfolk."
