Tawheed Jamal was stopped in his car and searched by police in Finchley Road on Monday, 5 November.
The officers found the Class A drugs, £600 in cash, and a mobile phone linking him to the supply of drugs.
The 18-year-old, of Marlborough Street, Forest Gate, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply and one count of acquiring criminal property
Jamal was sentenced to two and a half years behind bars.
PC Jon Kemp of the West Operation Raptor team said: “Operation Raptor takes no greater pleasure than hunting down drug dealers, arresting them and getting them locked behind bars.
“If criminals like Jamal think they can come to this county to deal drugs they are sorely mistaken.
“Operation Raptor teams are out on the streets of our county every day targeting those dealing drugs on our streets. If you are involved in this type of crime you can expect to be hearing from us soon.”Tags: Newham, Grays, Thurrock, Forest Gate
