A 38-year-old man from Burslem has been sentenced after committing offences in Stoke-on-Trent.
David Wheat, of High Lane, was sentenced to 21 months in jail at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court on 20 October after admitting breaching a restraining order and being in possession of a class B drug amphetamine.
Following a restraining order imposed on 2 April 2020, Wheat breached his restraining order by contacting his victim on numerous occasions between 4 January 2021 and 18 June 2021. Wheat pursued and harassed his victim by attending her address in Stoke-on-Trent, sending messages and making phone calls.
On 7 December 2020, Wheat was sat in the driver’s seat of a Volkswagen Golf on the car park of Central Forest Park, Stoke-on-Trent. He was approached by police following a strong smell of cannabis from the car. A search of the car was conducted and a wrap of what was believed to be Amphetamine was located in a tin in the vehicle which was revealed to belong to Wheat.
A spokesperson from Staffordshire Police said: "We are delighted with the sentencing of Wheat and we hope this serves as a warning to anyone else currently involved in similar activities, or perhaps thinking of doing so.
"We will continue to pro-actively seek out and disrupt all drugs activity on the streets of Staffordshire in our attempts to make the communities we serve a better place to live."
