Cocaine dealer Lachezar Blangev jailed after being stopped in Clapgate Lane, Ipswich





A 55-year-old cocaine dealer has been jailed for more than two years.

Lachezar Blangev, of no fixed address, appeared before Ipswich Crown Court last Thursday.

He pleaded guilty on April 4 to one count of being concerned in the supply of cocaine and one count of possession of criminal property.

Blangev was stopped on February 3 in Clapgate Lane, the court heard. Officers detained him before searching his phone, which they suspected was linked to drug-dealing.

His vehicle was then searched and cocaine and cash were seized.

It was then that officers discovered a possible home address for Blangev after he had refused to disclose it to officers.

Suffolk Police then raided a caravan in Broadgrass Green, between Elmswell and Woolpit, near Bury St Edmunds, where officers found 79 bags of cocaine and £2,000 in cash.

For the drug-dealing charge, Blangev was handed a 28-month sentence, while he was given a nine-month sentence for possession of criminal property.

These will be served concurrently.

The £2,890 in cash was also forfeited.
