At Cambridge Crown Court on Friday (7 May) Vargas was sentenced to two years and six months in prison after pleading guilty to the two offences.

PC James Ferries said: “Thanks to information received from members of the public, we were able to get a warrant to search Vargas’ home.

“As a result, Vargas is no longer selling drugs to people within the Huntingdon community and instead starting a prison sentence.

“The public are often our eyes and ears and it’s vital they continue to report information and concerns to us.”
