A Gloucester man has been sentenced to five years for supplying class A drugs in the city.
Following a trial at Gloucester Crown Court, Marino Giaquinto, 30 and of Reservoir Road, Gloucester, was handed the prison term for dealing cocaine.
Gloucester Sergeant Richard Handley said: “The arrest and investigation into Marino Giaquinto forms part of a pro-active investigation into the illegal drugs supply network within Gloucestershire.
"I am delighted that my colleagues and I have taken these drugs out of circulation and reduced the potential harm to individuals and communities.
We will continue to work with communities and act on information provided about illegal drugs. Support from the community is vital in this and I would encourage anyone with information about drug dealing to get in touch with us on 101. With your help we can continue to keep people safe.”
