A drug dealer from Littleport who was caught in a hotel room with class A drugs with a street value of more than £1,300 has been jailed for almost three years.
Tony Adams, 29, was being sought by police who found him in a hotel in Coldhams Lane, Cambridge, with a stash of crack cocaine and heroin.
The drugs were found hidden in some plastic gloves as well as a quantity of cash on December 1.
Adams, of New Road, Littleport, was jailed for 33 months at Cambridge Crown Court on Tuesday January 5 after pleading guilty to two counts of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply.
DC Laura Ramsey, who investigated, said: “Drugs can have a devastating impact on communities, often going hand in hand with other types of criminality.
