A HUNTINGDON drug dealer who was caught with cocaine with a street value of more than £55,000 has been jailed.

Police discovered the huge drugs haul when they executed a warrant at Mark George Dear’s home in Surrey Road on May 19.

The 41-year-old pleaded guilty to possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply on the first day of his trial at Huntingdon Crown Court on Tuesday (September 28).

He was jailed for four-and-a-half years.

Detective Constable Lloyd Metselaar said: “This was a significant seizure of Class A drugs and we welcome the sentence passed by the court.

“It is a great result to prevent such a large quantity of cocaine from hitting the streets of Huntingdon.

“We will continue to disrupt drug dealers and ensure we gather the evidence needed to lock them up for a long time.”
