Dealer jailed after tip-off

A DRUG dealer from Yatton who was caught with �10,000 worth of cocaine has been jailed thanks to helpful villagers.

Scott Everest, of North End Road, appeared at Bristol Crown Court charged with possession with intent to supply a class A drug, cocaine, and possession of a class B drug, amphetamine.

The 38-year-old was arrested by Yatton beat manager Paul Morris in November last year after a tip-off from ‘local intelligence’.

A warrant was carried out at his home and cocaine worth an estimated value of �10,000 was discovered.

Everest (pictured above) pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years and two months in prison.
