Main article content
A Burton man has been jailed for nearly three years for being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.
Christopher Goring, aged 43, of Derby Street, was sentenced to 33 months in prison at Stafford Crown Court on Friday (11 June) for possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A – heroin and possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A – crack cocaine. He had pleaded guilty to both charges.
In the afternoon of 12 May, officers attended the home address of Goring after stopping and searching another man on Derby Road.
A small amount of heroin was found in Goring’s pocket as well as a burner phone and £20 in cash. A search of his home address then uncovered wraps of crack cocaine and heroin concealed underneath a floorboard.
Scales and other paraphernalia also related to the supply of drugs were also found.
The incident also revoked a previous community order relating to a charge of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A from December last year. On top of being handed 24 months for the two drugs offences, Goring was re-sentenced to nine months for that offence to take his total to 33 months.
