Tyrese Blake-Hakeem was convicted on Friday 18 September at Oxford Crown Court to 54 months in prison for possesion with intent to supply class A controlled drugs Heroin and Crack Cocaine in Torquay.

On Friday 1st November 2019 Blake-Hakeem was located at an address in Torquay following welfare concerns for the occupant. He was found in possession of a large amount of cash and two mobile phones.

The drugs were estimated to be worth £3645. Cash was also £2720 seized on two separate occasions in Torquay in October and December 2019.
During his time in custody on the 1st November 2019, Blake-Hakeem spat in the eyes, mouth and face of one of the police officers. He was charged with this assault at the time and received a 12 month Community Order with an unpaid work requirement and £100 compensation.
