Detectives have warned they will continue to target high-harm drugs offenders after the latest jail sentence for a criminal caught by Cumbria Police.
James Humber, 49, was jailed for three years and nine months for offences including a charge linked to heroin.
Humber, of Kendal, was caught after investigations into drugs led to his arrest on February 1.
A search was carried out and heroin, cash, weighing scales and phones were seized from Humber’s bedroom. The heroin had a potential value of £4,400.
Humber was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court yesterday after admitting possessing heroin with intent to supply and acquiring, using or possessing criminal property.
The investigation forms part of Operation Alliance – Cumbria Police’s ongoing response to protect the county against serious and organised crime.
Speaking after the sentencing, Detective Constable Olivia Draycott said: “Disrupting community drug supply is among our policing priorities in Cumbria.
“Drugs criminals should know that we will target them robustly and aim to bring them before a court.
“We have a strong track record of this in Cumbria and will continue our efforts to tackle the crime surrounding high-harm drugs such as heroin.”
