Snot a joke as drug dealer jailed for three and a half years

 Published on: 4th December 2015   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

A Ruislip drug dealer is behind bars after being caught out when he asked for a tissue to wipe his nose. Ross Tomlinson, of Queens Walk, was convicted at Isleworth Crown Court last on November 25 of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and sentenced to three and a half years in jail. The court heard how on March 19 this year, police officers were patrolling Hunters Hill where they saw Tomlinson walking towards them. After spotting the officers, the 25-year-old dropped a white bag and ran in the opposite direction. Police chased and caught him but found nothing on him. At this point, Tomlinson asked the officers if he could take out a packet of tissues from his pocket to wipe his nose. He started to search his pockets for tissues but could not find any. Meanwhile, other officers were hunting for the suspicious bag Tomlinson had discarded earlier. It was found close to where Tomlinson was first spotted and inside they found 40 wraps of cocaine. Tomlinson denied it belonged to him, however next to the bag officers also found a packet of pocket tissues. Officers searched Tomlinson’s home where they found more than £1,000 in cash as well as three more packets of tissues of the same brand next to the bag of drugs. Tomlinson was arrested for possession with intent to supply class A drugs and later charged. Sergeant Liam Moore from Hillingdon Police Partnership Tasking Team, said: “Tomlinson running away resulted in him being chased by the officers and his runny nose linked him to the bag of drugs. “Hillingdon Police take drug dealing very seriously as it ruins the lives of those who take it as well as their families and the wider community. “We will do whatever we can within our powers to catch those involved in this activity and urge members of the public to contact us if they suspect anyone dealing drugs in your area.”
