Following a thorough investigation and a review of mobile phone data, evidence of drug supply was found.
Moulton pleaded guilty to five charges of being concerned in the supply of Class A and Class B drugs.
He was sentenced to a total of 27 months in prison.
Investigating officer DC Steve Donovan, said: “Moulton made money from selling Class A and Class B drugs within Diss, which we know is often linked to other acquisitive crime, which has a negative impact on the local community.
“Following a thorough investigation, this strong case resulted in a guilty plea, which will see Moulton behind bars for a considerable amount of time.
“We are committed in tackling drug supply in our communities and hope this sentence acts as a deterrent to anyone who may involve themselves in this criminal activity.”
