A 51-year-old man has been ordered stay out of parts of the Southmead area after being jailed for drug offences.
Robert Raynor, of no fixed address, appeared at Bristol Crown Court on Thursday (January 26) where he was handed a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order.
The order prevents Raynor from entering parts of the Southmead area. If he is seen breaching the order, he could receive a five-year prison term.
The order comes after Raynor appeared in the same court last October. He faced charges of possessing class A drugs with the intention to supply, where he was sentenced to two years and eight months in prison.
The charge follows officers finding him in possession of 100 wraps of class A drugs. The court heard on both occasions how Raynor had been found at a number of properties within the Southmead estate linked to drug dealing.
Southmead Beat Manager, PC Sarah Bond, said: “Raynor is an individual who has been causing the Southmead community harm through drug dealing for a number of years.
“We will not stop pursuing those involved in supplying drugs in our communities, drugs ruin people’s lives and are often linked to other crimes.
“We want to empower members of the public to report suspect drug dealing and drug use to us, so we can take positive action to eradicate it from our community.”
