A 54-year-old Weymouth man's been found guilty of posession of a class B drug with intent to supply.

Nigel Hellier from Selwyn Close in Littlemoor has been sentenced by Weymouth Magistrates to complete a community order and pay a fine of £60.

His prosecution comes after a police raid under the misuse of drugs act - they were acting off information from the public.

Police Constable Aidan Meredith of Littlemoor SNT said: ''This conviction is the result of Weymouth Police listening to the concerns of our local public and directing our resources to achieve a positive result for the wider community. Dorset Police will not tolerate drug related crime and we will robustly pursue and clamp down on these offenders. My message to drug dealers is that Mr Hellier's conviction should serve as a warning to you that the Police will not stop until you have been caught and put you before the Courts. I'd also encourage members of public with concerns about drug dealing and related crime in their area to contact us in confidence on 101, or anonymously via Crimestoppers.''
