A would-be cocaine dealer has been jailed for 40 months after he was found with wraps of the Class A drug in a central London bar.

Thomas Richard William Kennedy, 40, of Greenwood Gardens, Radlett, was caught red-handed at Tin Pan Alley in Denmark Street by police who seized 117 wraps of cocaine.

He pleaded guilty at Blackfriars Crown Court to possession with intent to supply and supplying class A drugs.

The court heard 15 officers and a dog unit raided the premises at about 6.15pm on October 13 last year and closed the bar. They seized 117 wraps of cocaine, 100 of which were hidden behind a false wall.

Others were concealed in a tea towel and on Kennedy’s person.

The drugs had an estimated street value of £6,000 and have since been destroyed.

Kennedy was arrested and taken to Kentish Town police station. He appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on February 8 where the matter was referred to crown court.

A total of 9,047.38 was confiscated by the police.
