Jail For Drug Dealer Discovered In St Ives

Bruno Afonso, 27, of Gladstone Street, Peterborough was spotted by officers driving around the town in a black Renault Clio on 8 October last year with a stash of cocaine and heroin.

Officers from the St Ives neighbourhood team pulled Afonso over and found £300 in cash and two mobile phones in the car.

While transporting him to the station for a further search, Afonso admitted he had drugs hidden in his underwear and produced 44 wraps of crack cocaine and 27 wraps of heroin.

He was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Courtto 30 months in prison after previously pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin.

Detective Constable Steve Surtees said: “With their local knowledge our neighbourhood officers can spot when something isn’t quite right and in this case their instincts were right.

“There is nowhere to hide in this county for drug dealers and those who seek to exploit the vulnerabilities of others.”
