A drug dealer from Huntingdon, caught with £3000 worth of cocaine, has been sentenced to 2 years in prison.

Ben Cross, 27, of Percy Green Place, Huntingdon, was stopped by police just after 6.30pm on August 5th last year. 

Cross ran off while being questioned by the officers but was arrested about half an hour later. A total of 37.55 grams of cocaine with a street value of more than £3000 was found near to the area where he had run and in his car. 

His house was also searched and a further 0.2 grams of MDMA seized. Evidence of drug dealing was discovered on Cross’s three mobile phones. 

He pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply a class A drug and possessing a class B drug, the MDMA. 

Cross was jailed at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday. 

Police are attempting to recover Cross’s ill-gotten gains under the Proceeds of Crime Act
