Benefits Street star Black Dee JAILED for running drugs empire and possessing ammunition

Sourced from the Express :

Samora Roberts, from the original Channel 4 series, was arrested in June 2013 after 11 .38-calibre Smith and Wesson cartridges were found during police raids.

The ammunition was stuffed into a shoe in a cupboard at her home in Winson Green, Birmingham.

The 34-year-old from the 2014 series appeared in the dock in a multi-coloured Adidas tracksuit at Birmingham Crown Court.

Roberts, who has since been reduced to ‘sofa surfing’ was convicted by a jury in November last year of possessing ammunition and heroin, and two counts of possession of crack cocaine with intent to supply, having earlier admitted offences related to cannabis.
