A drug dealer had a two-year-old child in a pushchair with him when he sold heroin to an undercover police officer in an Ipswich park, a court has heard.

Patreece Pryor met the officer in Gippeswyk Park in January after the officer ordered the drugs during a call to a telephone number he had been given, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

Pryor, 22, of Park Road, Ipswich, admitted three offences of supplying heroin on January 10, 13 and 15 and offering to supply crack cocaine on January 21.

Jailing him for three years Recorder Richard Christie said: “You involved yourself in the street dealing of Class A drugs four times over a period of eight or nine days.”

Robert Sadd, prosecuting, said Pryor was arrested during a police operation which targeted the supply of Class A drugs in Ipswich.

He said that Pryor supplied drugs after the undercover officer contacted a number he had been given.

In addition to supplying drugs to the officer in Gippeswyk Park Pryor had also arranged to meet him on another occasion near the playground in the town’s Christchurch Park, said Mr Sadd.

He said the transactions between Pryor and the undercover officer were filmed and following his arrest Pryor admitted that it was him in the footage.

Richard Wood, for Pryor, said his client had become involved in the supply of drugs after threats were made against him and his family.
