A drug dealer who concealed £130,000 in his Cambridge home has been jailed for more than five years.
Sheptim Uruci, 41, of Rayson Way, appeared at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday (July 29) and was sentenced to five and a half years in prison.
Police pulled Uruci over in his Mercedes in Stanley Court on April 7 this year after suspecting he was involved in drug crime.
Uruci handed over a fake driving licence and gave a fake name.
It was after wraps of crack cocaine hidden in a sock, £500 cash and a mobile phone were recovered from his vehicle that he was arrested.
