A drug dealer who targeted Great Yarmouth is due to appear for sentencing at Norwich Crown Court.

Lukas Watchhorn, 20, of Leicester, was arrested in Yarmouth on Tuesday in connection with the supply of controlled drugs in the Deneside area of the town.

Officers recovered cash, drugs and a mobile phone.

He was then charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and possession of criminal property.

Norfolk police said Watchhorn appeared for a court hearing via a video link and will appear at Norwich Crown Court at a later date for sentencing after admitting the offences.

The arrest was said to be part of Operation Gravity, a police operation targeting drug dealers.

Norfolk Police launched Operation Gravity in December 2016 in response to an increase in violent crime associated with drug dealing and use. So far there have been more than 500 arrests.
