Suspended sentence for man who had ‘significant’ amount of cocaine in his body
A drug dealer who hid more than 200 wraps of crack cocaine in his anus has been given a suspended prison sentence.
Following his arrest at an address in Lowestoft in April last year, Shamarie Tomlin was taken to hospital where he passed two packages containing a total of 244 wraps with a street value of more than £2,500, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Tomlin, 20, of London, admitted possessing crack cocaine with intent to supply and was sentenced to a two-year prison sentence suspended for two years.
He was also given a 15-day rehabilitation activity requirement and ordered to do 150 hours unpaid work in the community.
Sentencing him, Judge David Goodin said Tomlin had been in possession of a 'significant' amount of crack cocaine.
