A Great Yarmouth drug dealer has been jailed for more than three years for supplying heroin to the town, along with a second from London.
Nathan Varley, 38 of Stephenson Close, Great Yarmouth and Miguel Montique, 21 of Gloucester Road, London, both pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply heroin.
The pair were arrested after police officers raided a property in Stephenson Close in May, seizing £3,500-worth of heroin, cash, mobile phones and two machetes.
Both Varley and Montique were found in the property and arrested during the raid, which was the result of a five-week undercover operation by the police's tactical unit.
The operation saw officers carry out surveillance of the suspects, seeing the pair using the property as a base for drug dealing.

'As well as drugs, we found two weapons in the property. Both machetes were found by the sofa near to children's toys and readily available to anyone who wanted to use them. It's a stark reminder of the violence that can be associated with drug dealing and we will continue to target those involved in the supply of illegal drugs.'
