A drug dealer has been found guilty of supplying crack cocaine and heroin.

On August 26, a jury at Cambridge Crown Court took just one hour and 57 minutes to find Jayson Farmer guilty of being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine.

Farmer was caught in April 2019 when officers went to a property in Pulleyn Court, St Neots, looking for a wanted man.

While at the house, officers became suspicious of Farmer and a check through the Police National Computer revealed he was also wanted.

Farmer was searched and found with a small bundle of heroin as well as a mobile phone filled with text messages linking him to drug dealing.

The 25-year-old, of Newton Road, Northampton, was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison.

PC Steve Girdlestone, who investigated, said: “It doesn’t matter where you are, if you are dealing drugs in our county, we will catch up with you.”
