A drug dealer from Wellingborough has been locked up for two years after he admitted supplying heroin.

Jake Price, aged 20, of Minerva Way, appeared at Northampton Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to four charges of supplying class A drugs with intent and two charges of possessing class A drugs.

The court heard Price was one of 40 people charge with drugs offences as part of Operation Pyramid carried out by Northamptonshire Police at the start of the year.

Price was arrested after he supplied heroin to an undercover police officer on a number of occasions between December 2014 and February this year.

Recorder Oscar Del Fabro sentenced Price to two years in a young offenders institution.

He said: “Drugs like heroin are poison and you were selling that poison on the streets of Northamptonshire.”
