Newmarket: Class A drug dealer jailed for 44 months after raid at his Nat Flatman Street home

A NEWMARKET man is today beginning a 44-month prison sentence for drug dealing.

Nicholas Lockhart was found with “significant” amounts of cocaine and ketamine when police officers executed a search warrant at his home in Nat Flatman Street last summer.

The unemployed 21-year-old was arrested and later pleaded guilty to possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply. He was sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday.

Investigating officer, Ds Matt Little, said: “We responded to information and executed a search warrant at his address where significant amounts of cocaine and ketamine were found.

“There was evidence of drug use and dealing and by subsequently successfully prosecuting him we hope it sends out a clear message that houses used for such purposes will be targeted.

“We will continue to target this type of criminality and this conviction demonstrates that anyone dealing drugs can expect to be arrested and put before the courts.”

Anyone with information about drug activity in Newmarket should contact the local Safer Neighbourhood Team on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
