Ipswich man charged in connection with drug offences
A 28-year-old man has been charged in connection with drug offences in Ipswich after cocaine was found at his property to an estimated street value of £3,120.
At around 10.30am on Tuesday, police conducted a stop and search of a white Toyota Corolla in Bramford Road, Ipswich.
The man inside the vehicle, Armir Dyrmishaj, was asked to produce identification.
He then showed an image of a driver's licence on his phone which was suspected of being counterfeit.
Communication on the phone was also consistent with an involvement in the supply of class A drugs.
Dyrmishaj was then arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and possession of a counterfeit document with intent to deceive, and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre where his fingerprints revealed his true identity.
A check of police records also showed him to be banned from driving until April 2022.
Dyrmishaj's residence was then searched where officers discovered a large quantity of cash, a number of identification documents in different names and a substantial quantity of cocaine that has an estimated street value of £3,120.
Dyrmishaj was then charged with: Possession of class A drugs, namely cocaine, with intent to supply, being concerned in supplying class A drugs, possession of identity documents with the intent to deceive, driving whilst banned, obstructing a police officer and possession of criminal property.
Dyrmishaj appeared before Ipswich Magistrates Court on Wednesday where he was remanded in custody to appear before Ipswich Crown Court on August 11.
