In police interview he answered no comment, but in a statement admitted officers would find messages relating to drug dealing on his mobile phone.

McNaught, of Rampton Drift, Longstanton, was jailed for two years and eight months at Cambridge Crown Court on Wednesday after pleading guilty to two counts of possessing a Class A drug with intent to supply and possession of a controlled Class B drug.

Sergeant Jamie Williams said: “This sentence has come as a direct result of concerned residents calling to report drug dealing in their area. It really demonstrates the difference the public can make by reporting this kind of activity.

“We remain committed to tackling street based drug dealing and would urge anyone with information about those responsible to get in touch.”
