A DRUG dealer caught with class A drugs for a third time has pleaded guilty at court.

'Third strike' drug dealer Ismaeel Mohammed appeared at Oxford Crown Court today.

The 21-year-old of Allin Close, Oxford pleaded guilty at that hearing to the single count of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

He admitted having a quantity of cocaine which he intended on selling to others.

The offence took place on September 18 this year in Oxfordshire.

Prosecutor Cathy Olliver said at the brief hearing that Mohammed was a 'third-striker' as he had committed the same drugs offence on two previous occasions.

That means that he will automatically be made subject to a minimum jail term of seven years.

After the guilty plea had been entered presiding Judge Michael Gledhill QC agreed to adjourn the case while further information is obtained on Mohammed.

He will appear again at the same court to be sentenced on October 22.

Mohammed was remanded in custody to await that sentencing hearing.
