A man from Norwich who was the boss of the 'Wilson' drugs line has been jailed.

Kirk Smith, 30, of Thorpe Road, appeared at Norwich Crown Court on May 17 after pleading guilty to being involved in the supply of crack cocaine at an earlier hearing in April.

He was arrested on March 4 in Suffolk Square after investigations led officers to the ‘Wilson’ drugs line selling crack cocaine.

Smith was identified as the main holder of the line and investigations showed that messages had been sent out between November 5 2023 and February 22 2024 advertising drugs.

Smith was sentenced to three years in prison on May 17. 

Investigating officer, PC Lewis George from the Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We continue to work hard to disrupt the distribution of drugs in Norwich and hope this result acts as a deterrent to those who are involved with drugs."
