A man has been sentenced to three years and two months imprisonment after pleading guilty to drug offences.

Abraham Gladstone, 23, who was living in Bristol at the time but is originally from Okehampton, Devon, was arrested on December 21 after he was seen driving a silver Peugeot erratically along the M4 at Swindon.

He was stopped by officers from the Dedicated Crime Team.

Drug paraphernalia was seen within the car and as a result, the vehicle and the occupants were searched.

Gladstone was found in possession of a knife and in the car were MDMA tablets, £2,400 in cash and in the rear of the car was a carrier bag containing a large quantity of high purity cocaine.

Gladstone appeared at Swindon Crown Court on Friday, June 9, and pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine with a street value of £75,000, in addition to possession with intent to supply MDMA tablets, money laundering, possession of a knife and possession of class C drugs.

Detective Constable George Booth, of the Dedicated Crime Team, said: "I am pleased that we have been able to stop this large supply of drugs from reaching the streets of Wiltshire.

"I am satisfied with the sentence handed out and would continue to urge members of the public who suspect drug activity in their area to contact police on 101."
