A DRUG dealer has been jailed in the UK for 29 years after cops identified him thanks to a huge Conor McGregor mural in his house.

Ryan Palin, 36, avoided detection using an encrypted mobile phone to peddle heroin, cocaine and amphetamine.

The UFC fight fan was arrested last December when cops raided his home in Caldy, Merseyside, and found €160,000 of designer clothes and watches worth €150,000.

Analysis of his Encrochat phone revealed he was involved in a conspiracy to supply 700kg of cocaine, 15kg of heroin and 40kg of amphetamine between July 1 2019 and May 12 2020.

But cops still had to link Palin to the mobile device — which they did when they found a mural of the Irish cage fighter painted on a wall at his house in his photos.

Despite this damning evidence, Palin still thought he had a fighting chance of walking free and denied the charges put to him, but was found guilty by a jury at Liverpool crown court on Friday of conspiracy to Supply Class A and B drugs.

Detective Sergeant Graeme Kehoe said: “We welcome the verdict and sentence and now Ryan Palin is behind bars he can no longer peddle huge amounts of drugs and misery on the streets of Merseyside and beyond.

“Despite the overwhelming evidence against him, Palin chose to go to trial.

“Fortunately the jury saw through his lies and Palin can now consider the consequences of his actions while he serves a significant time in jail.

“Palin’s substantial sentence should serve as a stark warning to anyone involved in this criminality that there are serious consequences. We will find you and bring you to justice.
