DEVIZES police have welcomed the jailing of drug dealer Robert Stubberfield who walked into a police station to complain he had been named on social media for being wanted.

Stubberfield, 19, who lived in Massey Road, Devizes before moving to Trowbridge, pleaded guilty to supplying the class A and B drugs, as well as possessing amphetamines. He was jailed for 20 months.

He also admitted to three thefts and a burglary at Swindon Crown Court on July 3.

Detective Constable Edward Roe, of Wiltshire Police, said: "This is a great result - at last people living in and around Devizes will be rid of this man for a quite some time.

"He has been causing lots of problems and issues for the community over the past few years.

"I would like to thank our teams in Devizes and Trowbridge - the Neighbourhood Policing Teams as well as CID. They have all worked very hard, ensuring this excellent result.

"This is also a good example of how different agencies can pull together, with Devizes CID working with the local housing authority, resulting in him also being evicted from his flat in the town."

Police say that back in March he walked into Trowbridge Police Station to complain after he was named on social media for being wanted in connection with drug offences.
