‘Evadas if you went for the toilet, where’s the wet patch?” began a series of questioning that led to a cycling drug dealer being jailed for four and a half years. Evadas Lygmalis had used the excuse of using the car park as a loo when police stopped him in Millfield, Peterborough.

Although he told police he didn’t have any ID on him, a quick check found he was wanted for drug dealing offences. They also found he had more than £500 worth of class A drugs on him.

And he couldn’t explain why he was carrying an extendable baton – a prohibited weapon.

Officers from the Neighbourhood Support Team were carrying out an operation in the Lincoln Road area of Millfield on 21 August last year when they came across 30-year-old Lygmalis heading towards the same property as them in Rock Road.

Lygmalis was seen to go behind a parked car and place something in his mouth before officers stopped him and asked what he was doing.

Drug dealer Evadas Lygymalis tried to claim he had gone to the toilet behind the car, and not believing him after checking the area, a check on the Police National Computer (PNC) showed he was wanted for failing to appear in court in connection with drug dealing offences.

Lygmalis, of no fixed address, was arrested and a routine search of him was carried out which uncovered a plastic bag containing about £520 worth of class A drug wraps in his waistband, along with more than £200 in cash and the baton.

He appeared at Peterborough Crown Court on Monday where he admitted charges of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin, as well as being in possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, namely an extendable baton.

He was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison.

Detective Constable Lee Lombardo, who investigated, said: “This was a great spot by the officers who trusted their instinct when they saw something suspicious.

“Tackling drug dealing in this particular area is a priority for the local neighbourhood team, as an issue raised by the local community. To help us continue this work, I would urge people to pass on any concerns to us.”

Anyone with information or concerns about drugs can report online via the force’s dedicated drugs information webpage.
