A class A drug dealer was "caught red-handed" when police found 2.66 grams of cocaine, 16.4 grams of cannabis and 32 MDMA tablets hidden inside his March home.
Gage Coe had his home in St Peter's Road raided under the Misuse of Drugs Act by the Fenland Neighbourhood Policing Team on August 9 last year.
Officers attended the 22-year-old's flat at just before 7.30pm and found the door unlocked and Coe standing inside.
Coe confirmed he was the paying tenant before officers searched the premises.
They found the drugs which had an estimated street value of up to £800. Forensic examination of a mobile phone belonging to Coe also revealed drug-related messages.
