While at the house, officers became suspicious of Farmer and a check through the Police National Computer revealed he was also wanted.

Farmer was searched and found with a small bundle of heroin and a mobile phone filled with text messages linking him to drug dealing.

At the court hearing, the dealer was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison after a jury took an hour and 57 minutes to find Farmer guilty.
