Confiscation orders were also made against both at the hearing on Friday.

Wadman accepted that he had made £5,200 from dealing cannabis and was ordered to repay £1,290.

This equalled the value of his car and the cash seized from him when he was arrested.

Bishop accepted that he had made £5,150 from dealing cannabis and was ordered to repay £2,350 which was the value of the cash seized from his house.

They were caught when police stopped a vehicle owned by Wadman and linked him to Bishop.

Sergeant Chris Lane, of Brighton and Hove Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “The sentencing of these two drug dealers was the result of a long and thorough investigation by officers which resulting in linking these two men to the distribution of cannabis in the area.
