Man told police he was best dealer about in interview

A man who boasted he was the ‘best drug dealer about’ has been jailed for more than five years.

Police were on patrol in Cambridge on 1 December when they spotted Robert Busby parked on the pavement on Cherry Hinton Road.

With lots of intelligence around him dealing drugs, they went to question him but he attempted to drive off.

The 54-year-old, of no fixed address, was then searched and found to be in possession of crack cocaine and heroin with an estimated street value of £1,390.

While being booked into custody he boasted to officers ‘I am one of the best drug dealers about’.

At Peterborough Crown Court yesterday (16 January), Busby was sentenced to five years and seven months in prison (2,045 days) after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance.

PC Ollie Hagen, from the Neighbourhood Support Team, said: “The inquisitive actions of the officers that day ensured a large quantity of drugs were taken off the streets and a lengthy sentence secured for Busby.


“We are dedicated to relentlessly pursuing and disrupting criminality, and we are determined to bring criminals to justice and remove them from our communities.”
