Nunn had been previously convicted in August for four drug offences that took place last November.

Sgt Turner told town councillors during his monthly report on Monday: “This sends out a strong message that we will not tolerate drug dealers.
“I commend my officers, who have spent the best part of this year putting this job together.”
