A man has been jailed for more than two years over supplying class A drugs in Salisbury.

Ismael Correia, 20, of Haslemere Avenue, Hounslow in London was sentenced to a total of 26 months on May 9 after pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of class A drugs, possession of a zombie style knife and breaching his suspended sentence.

Officers attended the address of a vulnerable drug user in Salisbury on November 30 last year following concerns of ongoing drug dealing.

Inside the property, officers found Correia and arrested him after he was found in possession of class A drugs, cash, a knife and a mobile phone with evidence of drug supply on it.

Detective Sergeant Dave Hambly said: “We are committed to targeting drug dealers who travel into our county and exploit vulnerable drug users within our communities, often with violence and the use of weapons.

"This offending will not go unnoticed and these people will be identified and put before the courts.”
