Peterborough: Drug Dealer Jailed
A man caught on CCTV selling drugs outside a cafe in Peterborough has been jailed for five years.
22 year old Almame Cassama [pictured - right] from Walton Park in Peterborough, sold heroin and crack cocaine outside the Dolce Mel Cafe in Lincoln Road in June this year.
He was caught making the deals on CCTV.
He was able to be identified on the CCTV due to a distinctive tattoo on his arm with his mum's name on.
His conviction follows a big police push to catch dealers in Peterborough.
In October, 26 dealers were jailed for a total of more than 70 years.
Detective Chief Inspector Jon Hutchinson said: "The Judge made it clear in his sentencing how seriously he viewed drug dealing and the pernicious effect it has on wider society.
The sentence also reflects the fact that Cassama prolonged the course of justice by denying the charges against him.
Cassama has learnt, as many others have done this year, that dealing drugs in Peterborough will result in you being arrested, charged and given a significant jail term."
Domestic abuse and mental health will be priorities for the new Family Safeguarding Service in Peterborough.
