A suspected Brighton large-scale drug dealer has been arrested after a four-year search.

Anton Duchesne, 37, has been charged with two offences of having cocaine and cannabis with a view to selling the drugs.

The offences are alleged to have taken place in January 2006.

Sussex Police said that Brighton detectives had used the Crimestoppers to website to post a photograph and description of Duchesne.

Having received intelligence that he could be in Oxford, they briefed officers from Thames Valley Police to look out for Duchesne.

Two weeks ago two police officers in Oxford spotted him, arrested him and he was brought back to Brighton.

Duchesne appeared at Brighton Magistrates’ Court the next day and was remanded in custody to appear at Lewes Crown Court on Wednesday 10 November.
