A Swindon drug dealer who spent time in jail after leading police on a chase through the town has returned to court.

Billy Livingstone appeared at Swindon Crown Court on Thursday, March 28, via video link from HMP Winchester to submit pleas to seven new charges.

The 24-year-old, of Woodcutter Mews in Groundwell, pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine, heroin and cannabis with intent to supply the Class A and B drugs in Swindon between December 1, 2023, and February 15, 2024.

He also admitted to being involved in the production of cannabis oil and possessing £2,000 in cash that was proceeds of crime on February 14.

The defendant entered guilty pleas to driving a Mercedes Benz 200 along Thamesdown Drive on February 14 without insurance and while disqualified.

The case was adjourned until April 5 and Livingstone will be remanded in custody until then.

In January 2022, Livingstone was sent to prison for three years and nine months after he led police on a chase through Swindon town centre while driving a stolen hire car, and threatened two members of the public who he cut up in a road rage incident.

He was eventually arrested in a pub and was found with a large amount of drugs, cash and dealing equipment on him and at his address.
