A 41-year-old man has been sentenced to 40-months in prison for possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin.
Satnam Singh, of Marlborough Road, Southall, pleaded guilty at Isleworth Crown Court on May 11, according to a Met Police press statement.
On September 2 2014, officers were on patrol in Norwood Road, Southall, when they saw Singh in the car park.
He was wanted for failing to appear at West London Magistrates' Court in August for a separate matter.
On seeing the officers, Singh ran off. He was chased and detained nearby.
Singh was transported back to the police station in the police van.
While he was taken out of the police van, a quantity of class A drugs were found between the cage door and the outer door.
He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
Singh was bailed while enquiries were made by Acton CID. He was summonsed to appear at Ealing Magistrates' Court on December 29 before the case was passed to Isleworth Crown Court.
Singh pleaded guilty to two charges of possession with intent to supply a controlled Class A drug - one for crack cocaine and one in relation to heroin. He was sentenced to 40 months' imprisonment for both offences, which will run concurrently.
The officer in the case, DC Michael Jones, said: "This is a good result for the community of Ealing and I am pleased that a drug dealer has been taken off the streets.
"We will continue to target drug dealers and bring to justice those intent on breaking the law in Ealing."
