A man has been jailed after we found a zombie knife, crack cocaine and heroin during a search in Stoke-on-Trent.
Myka Warren, aged 20, of Ferncliffe Road, Birmingham, was sentenced to three years and five months behind bars at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court on Tuesday (29 November) after admitting possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, heroin and possessing a knife/sharp pointed article in a public place.
The court heard how officers saw Warren talking to a group of men on Waterloo Road on 17 August this year.
He gave one of them a plastic bag containing drugs and walked to a bus stop nearby.
We followed him there and searched him, leading to the discovery of:
A zombie knife stored in a sheath in his trousers
A black Nokia phone used to sell drugs in the area
£190 in cash
He tried to hide a bag of crack cocaine and heroin in his boxers but we later found them following a second search in custody.
Warren was subsequently charged and later admitted the offences at an earlier court hearing.
PC Isabelle Pole, who dealt with the case, said: “Warren had been circulating these harmful drugs to vulnerable members of our community.
“I’m happy that he’s been punished for his actions and proactive officers have been able to remove drugs and a potentially lethal weapon from our streets.”
