Alongside the heroin and cocaine, the officers found an iPhone, £1,310 in cash and a ‘burner’ phone.

On Tuesday (June 4) at Cambridge Crown Court he pleaded guilty to three counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, one count of possession with intent to supply Class B and assault by beating of an emergency worker.

Delli, of Mayville Road, London was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison and ordered to pay £1,355 in compensation.

PC Dan Scott said “Delli’s immediate custodial sentence serves as a stark reminder to people selling, or wanting to sell, Class A drugs in Cambridgeshire.

“Our officers will proactively seek dealers out and we will always look to prosecute offenders.”
