Rawa Ibrahim, of Avondale Drive, Hayes, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday after pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of heroin and crack cocaine.
Ibrahim was arrested on June 19 at his home in London after police had secured a search warrant and found a mobile phone that was believed to be used in a county lines operation in Suffolk.

He was taken directly to Martlesham police investigation centre for questioning and charged the following day on suspicion of being involved in the supply of class A drugs.
The police managed to download data from the phone from the time between November 29, 2022, and June 19, 2023, which showed that Ibrahim had been using the phone to operate a county lines drug operation called Marlow.
This drug business supplied crack cocaine and heroin in the Ipswich area, facilitating the sale of class A drugs by repeatedly sending bulk SMS text messages to potential buyers.
Ibrahim has been sentenced to 29 months imprisonment.
