A drug dealer’s mobile phones held the key to busting him for trying to supply cocaine and ketamine in Ellesmere Port .
Richard Lewis, 25, has been jailed after evidence of his involvement in Class A substance dealing was discovered on his numerous smartphones.
Cheshire Police found 225g of ketamine along with scales and lists on a search of his house in Whitecroft Road on November 12.
He had pleaded guilty to charges of offering to supply a Class A drug (cocaine) and possession with intent to supply a Class B drug (ketamine).
Lewis was sentenced to three years in prison at Chester Crown Court on April 7.
A Cheshire Police spokesman said: “This sentence shows that the supply of controlled drugs in our communities will not be tolerated, and hopefully this sentence will act as a deterrent to others.
“Information from members of the public is vital in the fight against drug-related crime.”
Anyone with any information about criminal activity is urged to call Cheshire Police on 101.
Information can also be passed on anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
