A man has been jailed after admitting carrying out a series of drug offences across Cannock over the last two years.
Jack Girvan, 26, of Sandpiper Close, Hednesford, was sentenced to three years behind bars at Stafford Crown Court on Friday 18 February.
He had previously pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs, three counts of possession of criminal property and four counts of possession with intent to supply class B drugs.
The court heard that Girvan had attempted to flee from police during a search warrant of an address on Bowes Place, Cannock, in April 2020.
A black bag was discovered at the address containing a quantity of cannabis, a grinder, scales and £2,150 in cash, which Girvan later admitted to owning.
Then, in April and November 2021, Girvan was stopped on two occasions whilst travelling in an Audi on Wolverhampton and Station Road, where over £100 in cash and three mobile phones were seized.
A subsequent search of his address on Sandpiper Close revealed scales, a quantity of cocaine and cannabis - with a street value of about £2,000 - and over £8,000 in cash.
Detective Constable Lindsey-Anne Brown, of Staffordshire Police, said: "Girvan committed these offences over a substantial period of time and despite police contact, did not change his behaviour.
"We welcome this sentence and hope it serves as a reminder that dedicated teams within the force are proactively investigating drug crimes in the community and seeking out prolific offenders."
