A dealer responsible for flooding Swindon with class A drugs is behind bars. 

Walcot man Amin Jama was identified as a key figure in the 'CJ line' which supplied heroin and crack cocaine users in the town - and in October police executed a warrant at his address in Drakes Way.

During the swoop, police seized a number of incriminating items linked to drug dealing, including mobile phones, cash and drug paraphernalia.

Jama has now been jailed for three years and seven months.

The 25-year-old, previously of Drakes Way but now at HMP Bristol, had previously pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, being concerned in the supply of heroin and possession of criminal property.

On Tuesday Jama appeared at Salisbury Crown Court to be sentenced.

Officers from Wiltshire Police's Fortitude team now say they will continue to work to keep dangerous drugs and disruptive drug operations away from your local communities. 

PC Craig Head, from the Fortitude team, said: “Our team is working relentlessly in Swindon to investigate, target and apprehend those who deal Class A drugs.

“We know the impact this criminal activity has on our town, and we will continue to do everything we can to disrupt their operations.
