A Dunmow drug dealer found with wraps of heroin and cocaine in his underwear has been jailed.

Robert Wright, 52, of Normansfield, was spotted by officers on November 10 last year after they became suspicious about an Audi A3 he was sitting in while it was parked at the Texaco garage off the A120, Cressing Road, in Braintree.

The officers were taking part in Operation Saturn which was tasked with tackling drug dealing and gang crime in the north of Essex.

Wright was arrested and was discovered with 26 wraps of heroin and 16 wraps of cocaine hidden in his underwear. He was charged with one count of possession with intent to supply heroin and another to supply cocaine.

At Chelmsford Crown Court, on March 22, Wright was given three years in jail.
