Man, 35, pleads guilty to class A drug dealing offences in Ipswich




A man has admitted being concerned in the supply of class A drugs in Ipswich, after being arrested in the town earlier this week.

A 35-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday on Martin Road on suspicion of drug offences and taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning. A quantity of suspected class A drugs were recovered, along with mobile phones.

Anthony White, of Stoke Hall Road in Ipswich, was subsequently charged with being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin, possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin, and possession of cannabis.

A 17-year-old girl was also arrested and later released under investigation.

White appeared at Ipswich Magistrates Court yesterday, where he pleaded guilty to the charges put to him, and was remanded in custody to await sentencing on a date to be confirmed.

Investigating officer Richard Pennie from the Serious Crime Disruption Team said: "This is an excellent example of several specialist police teams working together efficiently and effectively to dismantle a class A drugs business.

"I am especially grateful to my colleagues in the Sentinel team for their professionalism and expertise.

"Drug supply is a detestable offence which is incredibly exploitative and preys on the vulnerable.

"Suffolk police will not tolerate drug supply and will always deal robustly with such offences.”

Police are urging anyone who has information about drug use in their community to contact their local policing team on 101.
