A HEROIN dealer has been jailed following a Rugby Proactive CID investigation into the supply of the drug in the town.
William Spencer was arrested in April after known drug dealers were spotted going into his house in Lower Hillmorton Road.
Plain clothed detectives, who were in the area acting on intelligence around drug dealing, stopped the users and seized their drugs.
They forced entry into Spencer’s house where they found heroin hidden in his garden and arrested him.
Spencer, 53, admitted to supplying heroin and was jailed for two years and eight months at Coventry Crown Court.
Investigating officer Det Cons Tom Quinlan said: “Our investigation has resulted in another drug dealer from Rugby being jailed and the streets being that bit safer.
“I’m pleased he has been handed this jail term. People need to understand that if they get involved in drug dealing they face serving time.”
