HE was just your average, everyday next-door neighbour – a father of two lovely youngsters and an adoring husband.
But the cloak of respectability of Edwin Almond was smashed today when he was revealed as a Mr Big of the drugs world.
Neighbours of the 32-year-old couldn't help but notice that he had several luxury cars parked on his property, in High Road, Trimley St Mary – a Lotus Elise, a Jaguar and a Ducati motorbike.
Little did anyone realise that the vehicles were stolen and inside his village farmhouse were more than 2,500 ecstasy tablets.
Almond, of Great Street Farmhouse, pleaded guilty to four charges including possessing drugs with intent to supply and receiving stolen goods.
Dressed in a dark suit, he stood impassively in the dock at Ipswich Crown Court.
