A drug dealer has been sentenced to more than two years in prison after officers spotted a drug deal at the War Memorial Parade in St Ives on 12 November 2017 when they witnessed suspicious activity in a grey BMW.

Officers pulled it over, discovering the driver, 22-year-old Daniel Currell, to be in possession of several bags of cocaine. Currell, of Fairfields Crescent, St Ives, was arrested and admitted the drugs were his, but claimed they were for personal use. A police drugs expert examined Currell’s mobile phone, along with other seized items, and found conversations which indicated the stash was not for personal consumption. Earlier this month, Currell admitted being concerned in the supply of cocaine, possession with intent to supply cocaine, possession of cocaine and possession of cannabis and on Tuesday 28 May was jailed for two years and five months at Peterborough Crown Court.
