By Barrie Hudson - 22 June 2022


A man who dealt class A drugs in Swindon has been jailed for three years and seven months following a proactive police operation.

Officers from the Fortitude team were investigating the 'CJ line' as part of their enquiries into the supply of crack cocaine and heroin in Swindon.

During last summer they identified Amin Jama as one of the key figures behind this enterprise, and in October they executed a warrant at his address in Drakes Way, seizing mobile phones, cash and drugs paraphernalia.

Jama, 25, previously of Drakes Way but now at HMP Bristol, admitted being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, being concerned in the supply of heroin and possession of criminal property.

Sentence was passed at Salisbury Crown Court.

PC Craig Head from the Fortitude team said: “Our team is working relentlessly in Swindon to investigate, target and apprehend those who deal Class A drugs.

“We know the impact this criminal activity has on our town, and we will continue to do everything we can to disrupt their operations.

“The work we are doing is getting illegal drugs off our streets and ensuring the dealers face justice, but we cannot do this without the general public acting as our eyes and ears.

“If you suspect drug dealing in your community please let us know – we will use this information to build our intelligence, and it does lead to arrests and offenders being jailed.”
