A DRUG dealer has been jailed for four years and four months after heroin worth more than £2,500 was found at a house in the town.

Forty-five-year-old Mohammed Akram denied being concerned in the supply of the class A drug, but was found guilty after a three-day jury trial at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.

Sheriff Derrick McIntyre jailed Akram for 52 months, backdated to December 28.

Akram, described as a prisoner in Edinburgh, appeared on indictment and denied being concerned in the supply of diamorphine in Elm Court on December 28 last year.
