A BOURNEMOUTH man has been jailed for five years and four months after police seized a haul of class A and class B drugs worth £300,000.
Adam Roberts, 32, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A and class B drugs at Bournemouth Crown Court on Monday February 10 and was sentenced at Dorchester Crown Court last Thursday.
He was handed down five years and four months’ imprisonment for possession with intent to supply class A drugs and one year and eight months’ in prison for possession with intent to supply class B drugs – both to be served at the same time.
The court heard evidence that on Friday November 30, 2012 police attended Roberts’ home address to make an arrest for an unrelated matter.
An extensive search of the property was carried out during which a large quantity of heroin, amphetamines and cannabis was discovered.
Roberts was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply.
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.”
The CPS prosecutor was James Kellam.
