Man jailed for five years after drugs with a street value of £300,000 are discovered by police

POLICE stumbled across drugs with a street value of more than £300,000 when they searched a Bournemouth address for an unrelated matter.

Heroin, amphetamines and cannabis were discovered in the property of drug dealer Adam Roberts who has now been jailed for five years and four months.

Roberts, 32, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs when he appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court last month.

He has since been sentenced at Dorchester Crown Court to five years and four months for the class A drugs and one year and eight months, to be served concurrently, for the class B substances.

The court was told the drugs were discovered at his address in Bridle Crescent, off Castle lane East, in a raid in November 2012 and Roberts was arrested.

Detective Constable Roy Waters, of Bournemouth CID, said: “As a result of this investigation a large amount of drugs were taken off the streets of Dorset and a drug dealer has been jailed.

“His sentence serves as a reminder as to how seriously such offending is treated by the courts.

Dorset Police remains committed to reducing drug crime and will continue to pursue offenders and bring them to justice.”

Details of the sentence have been released as part of the Behind Bars initiative, a partnership between Dorset Police and the Crown Prosecution Service to keep the public up to date with convictions in the county.
