Enrikas Balsys, a 20-year-old drug dealer from Millfield, has been jailed.

Plain-clothed Cambridgeshire police officers were in Millfield when they spotted a group of known drug-users approach Balsys.

When Balsys spotted the officers, he alerted the group and made a run for it, not before he dismantled a burner phone and threw it under a car.

One officer chased Balsys and caught up with him.

He was arrested in Gilpin Street, Millfield on December 18 2023, and detained for a search.

No drugs were found on him during the search, however the discarded phone was recovered and found to contain records of calls from drug users, as well as bulk messaging relating to Class A drug dealing.

Balsys, of Gladstone Street, Millfield, appeared at Cambridge Crown Court today (February 29) where he was sentenced to two years and three months in prison after previously admitting being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine.

Detective Constable James Walker-Harrison, who investigated, said: “This case just goes to show that you don’t need to be caught with drugs on you to be convicted of drug dealing.

“This was a great spot by the Neighbourhood Support Team who were persistent and recovered the key piece of evidence needed to convict Balsys.”
