Fenland man jailed for drug offences
A Fenland man has been jailed for being concerned in the supply of cocaine in Thetford.
James Willis, aged 29 and of Fisherman’s Drive in March, Cambridgeshire, was sentenced to three years in prison at Norwich Crown Court on Thursday 3 March 2022 after pleading guilty to two counts of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs between Friday 26 June 2020 and Thursday 2 July 2020.
Following an investigation by the Breckland Neighbourhood Policing Team, Willis was arrested at an address in Bury Road, Stanton, Suffolk, on Wednesday July 1 2020.
Officers attending the property seized cocaine, cash, drug paraphernalia and mobile phones which later analysis showed had been used to advertise the sale of Class A drugs in the Thetford area.
Sergeant Marcus Wall said: “This sentence is another reminder that Norfolk Police will not tolerate drug dealing in Norfolk. Officers remain committed to identify those concerned in the supply of drugs in the county and we will respond robustly to those breaking the law.”
