This is the moment a "leading" Ipswich drug dealer was arrested at his home by armed police. 

Dominic Denton, 42 and of Glamorgan Road, was sentenced to eight-and-half-years in jail on Wednesday after pleading guilty to supplying drugs, including cocaine, in Ipswich and the surrounding area. 

Suffolk police has released footage of the moment he, as well as 60-year-old Shane Crossfield, was arrested as part of a series of raids across the town in August last year.

Armed officers can be heard shouting for Denton to come to the door at about 6.45am in the morning.

Denton then exits the home, before he is arrested.

In a hearing at Ipswich Crown Court, the prosecution said between 2016 and 2022, Denton played a leading role in the supply of drugs in Ipswich.

Precious White, 30 and of Barnard Square, Ipswich, was handed an 18-month community order for possession of criminal property. This includes 80 hours of unpaid work and up to 20 rehabilitation activity requirement days.

Crossfield, of Derby Close, was jailed for seven years in February.
