Ipswich: Jail term for drug dealer
A MAN has been sentenced to seven years behind bars for supplying class A drugs.
John Maw, from Turret Lane, Ipswich, was arrested in June 2011 following an investigation carried out by officers from Ipswich’s tactical support team.
Officers used Maw’s mobile phone to gather information which was later used as evidence in court and led to his conviction.
The 24-year-old was charged with being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine on January 24.
He pleaded not guilty at an earlier hearing.
