A man has been jailed over drug offences following a stop-and-search in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Bradley Keegan, 27, of High Lane, Burslem, was sentenced to 26 months in prison following a hearing at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court on Wednesday (17 August).
He had previously pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of heroin and being concerned in offering to supply class B drugs.
During sentencing Keegan was also ordered to pay a surcharge of £190.
The court heard how Keegan was stopped by an officer at 4.15pm on 3 February 2022 on High Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Following a search, over more than 10 seal plastic bags containing class B drugs and two seal plastic bags of class A drugs were seized by officer,s as was a mobile phone and a small quantity of cash.
PC Scott Ellis, of the Newcastle Local Policing Team, said: “Keegan attempted to conceal the drugs hoping officers wouldn’t spot them.
“He was intent on circulating these harmful substances within our communities for his own criminal gain.
“I’m happy with the sentencing and hope it serves as a reminder of the various ways in which our eagle-eyed officers are proactively targeting the supply of illegal drugs within our communities."
