A drug dealer who kept his cash in a Gucci handbag has been jailed.

Kevin Campbell, 44, of George Street, Reading, was chased down by police who spotted him dealing drugs on April 4 last year.

He was chased into a flat in George Street, where officers found a package containing 29 wraps of crack cocaine and 22 wraps of heroin.

Two burners phones, a cutting agent and weighing scales were also recovered - as was a Gucci bag containing a large amount of cash.

Campbell appeared at Reading Crown Court on June 28, where he pleaded guilty on two counts of supplying Class A drugs.

A judge jailed him for three years and three months.

PC Russell Morbey said: "Our Stronghold team will proactively target and prosecute anyone who is involved in the supply of drugs, which are a blight on our communities and cause misery to so many different people.

"Our activity will be visible to the public, as well as covert, and is all designed to disrupt those supplying drugs.

"Information received from the public around the sale of drugs plays a vital role in developing the intelligence to bring those responsible to justice.

"If you have any information about drug supply in your community, we would encourage you to report it by calling 101, or by using our online reporting system."
