On Friday (17 November) at Peterborough Crown Court he was jailed for 31 months.

DC Kyle Miskin welcomed the sentence handed out to Cannon, saying drug dealing ‘caused misery’ to communities across Peterborough.

He said: “Cannon clearly thought he could avoid being searched and get away with hiding these drugs but that simply wasn’t the case.

“Heroin and cocaine dealing can cause misery for our communities and devastate the lives of people trapped in addiction.

“Tackling drug dealing in the area is a priority for the local neighbourhood team. It’s vital we continue to do all we can to prosecute those who choose to deal drugs and profit from the misery they cause.”
