A drug dealer has been jailed for 48 months after being found with a 'Rambo' knife down his trousers, police said.

Dillon Farrar was arrested in St Johns Road, Fletton, Peterborough, on 20 April by plain-clothes patrolling officers in response to drug dealing in the area.

Farrar was spotted on an electric scooter and an attempted drug deal was stopped, but he tried to ride away. He was restrained by officers and sprayed with PAVA – an incapacitant spray.

The 20-year-old of Stagshaw Drive, Fletton, was searched and found to have a knife in his waistband and 37 wraps of class A drugs in his jacket pockets.

He appeared at Peterborough Crown Court on Monday for sentencing, having previously admitted possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin, possession of a knife in a public place and possession of cannabis.

He has also had six penalty points added to his driving licence for riding an e-scooter without insurance.

Det Con Emily Richardson said: "This was some great work by the neighbourhood officers who were carrying out proactive patrols in response to community concerns.

"Farrar made several attempts to get away but was safely restrained leading to the officers uncovering the drugs and weapon.

"We understand hearing about instances where weapons are involved is concerning, which is why we need the public’s help to tackle this issue and pass on any information about people who may carry weapons."
