A man has been jailed after admitting drug offences in Tamworth.
Officers searched a property at Craven, Stoneydelph, on 14 June 2021.
Police found 18-year-old Henry Hutton, from Birmingham, at the address.
Officers searched him and found four kinder egg containers full of heroin and crack cocaine along with two mobile phones and £505 in cash.
He was arrested at the scene and later charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs and assault of an emergency worker after kicking his shoe off in the face of an officer.
Hutton previously admitted the offences at Stafford Crown Court and was sentenced at the same court on Monday 4 October.
He was handed a 22-month jail term for the drugs offence and a further two-month consecutive sentence for the assault – a total of two years imprisonment.
Speaking following sentencing, Detective Sergeant Jon Bradbury, said: “I am pleased that Hutton was handed a significant jail term for his offences and hope this sentence will further disrupt the drug supply in the Tamworth area.”
