Jail term after covert operation
Dwayne Wallace
Dwayne Wallace was found carrying cocaine and heroin
A Reading drugs dealer who was found carrying class A drugs has been jailed for five years.

Dwayne Wallace, 31, was arrested at a property in the Berkshire town in February, where police had found him in possession of heroin and cocaine.

Reading Crown Court found Wallace guilty of two counts of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply.

Operation Falcon, Thames Valley Police's project to expose drug dealers, was behind Wallace's arrest.

Officers had obtained a drugs warrant to enter the property in Kestrel Way, Reading, where Wallace struggled with police officers before indicating that he was carrying something in his trousers.

There they found a bag containing 22 wraps of heroin and nine of cocaine.

Det Insp Ian Winson, of Operation Falcon, said: "Wallace is yet another person who chose to deal drugs and is now in prison."

"This should remain a warning to others who deal drugs that the Falcon team will investigate, target and arrest those who sell drugs."
