They called for uniformed officers, who arrested Lekndreaj and found 20 wraps of cocaine on him with a street value of up to £1,200.

Lekndreaj, of no fixed abode, later pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A and was sentenced to 18 months in prison at Cambridge Crown Court on Thursday (October 26).

Detective Sergeant Mark Hodgson said: “This is a great result where we’ve managed to take a substantial amount of drugs and a dealer off our streets. It shows the value in our covert operations and how seriously we take these crimes.

“Alongside our work, members of the public are our eyes and ears and I would urge them to report any suspicious activity to us as soon as possible.”
