Man jailed for three years for drug offences

A man from Newmarket has been jailed for three years after pleading guilty to supplying drugs.

Christopher Cook, (pictured above) 25, from, Icewell Hill, was sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday, February 21, after pleading guilty to being concerned in supplying a Class A controlled drug (cocaine), possession of a controlled Class A drug (cocaine) with intent to supply and possession of a controlled Class B drug (cannabis) with intent to supply.

Cook was arrested on January 23 following intelligence that suggested that he was responsible for drug dealing in the area.

When arrested he was seen to drop packages out of an upstairs window, which were later confirmed to be Class A and B drugs, while an amount of Class A drugs was also found inside the property.

A mobile phone was also discovered and seized which officers were able to prove had been used to send bulk messages out to potential drug users. Officers also seized an amount of cash.

Police Staff Investigator Simon Bendall, of the East/West Serious Crime Disruption Team, said: “It is very pleasing to successfully convict Christopher Cook, someone we know actively sold drugs to users in the area. We all know the harm and despair drugs cause, so it is always a good result when we are able to put someone behind bars who actively chooses to make financial profit from other people’s misery.”
