A drug dealer from Swindon has been sentenced to more than three years in prison.

When police searched Desmond Keville's home in Dalton Close in August 2017, they found class A drugs and a mixing agent with a street value of about £36,000.
 
Their investigation found the 30-year-old had been living a luxurious lifestyle, flying to Florida, Germany, Copenhagen, Dubai and Spain between January and July 2017.
 
They also took away expensive designer clothes and jewellery, £5000 in cash and motorbikes worth £35,000. 
 
Detective Inspector Mark Wilkinson said: "Keville was really living the high life through the money he made through illegal activity. This is a lifestyle that honest, hard-working members of our society can only dream of. It is important to stress that our investigation doesn’t just stop once the drugs have been seized – we will continue with our enquiries to seize and retain any property or possessions obtained unlawfully. This behaviour is completely unacceptable. You won’t just be sent to prison, you will also be ordered to forfeit the proceeds of your crimes. I’d like to thank the community for their continued support – please be assured that we will act on the intelligence we receive. Anyone with information about drug activity, should call police on 101."
