Nuneaton Proactive CID have helped convict one of the key suppliers of drugs in Nuneaton and Bedworth.
Manjinder Pama was described by the trial judge as a “serious drug dealer” as he was jailed for six years at Warwick Crown Court yesterday (Monday 11 September).
When officers raided a house in Bedworth in January, they seized a mobile phone with messages asking for drugs. They traced the number to Pama and he was arrested as he left a house in Wolverhampton.
A search of the house led to the seizure of a suitcase containing cocaine. A search of his car led to the seizure of £11,000 in cash.
Pama, 43, of Shetland Drive, Nuneaton was jailed after pleading guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to supply, being concerned in the supply of cocaine and possession of criminal property.
Detective Constable Dan Lydster from Nuneaton Proactive CID said: “Pama was one of the key suppliers of drugs in the area. This sentencing is terrible news for drug users in Nuneaton but an excellent outcome for the rest of the community.
“There is no place for drug dealers in our county. The likes of Pama inflict nothing but misery and suffering on people, their families, and the wider community, all for their own selfish greed.
“We will continue to relentlessly target drugs dealers and we welcome the assistance of the public in doing so. The information they pass on to us is vital.”
