A Northamptonshire drug dealer has been jailed for two years and four months after he admitted supplying heroin and crack cocaine.

Dominic Williams-Pearce, aged 24, of Buckwell Place, Wellingborough, appeared at Northampton Crown Court and pleaded guilty to two charges of possessing class A drugs with intent.

The court heard Williams-Pearce was arrested by police in Wellingborough on February 2 this year.

His Honour Judge Rupert Mayo, sentencing, said although it was a “modest amount”, dealing class A drugs was something the court system was very “hostile” towards.

He sentenced Williams-Pearce to 28 months in jail. He is likely to serve half before being released on licence.

Detective Sergeant Keith Morson, from Operation Worcester, said: “This conviction signifies another class A drug supplier taken off the streets and helps to reduce the supply of dangerous drugs in Wellingborough.

“Operation Worcester has made significant progress in tackling the organised supply of drugs and firearms in the town and we encourage any person with information that would assist this fight to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
