A man has been jailed after drugs worth over £9,000 were seized by officers.
Imran Mohammed Khan, 43, of Oxford Gardens, Stafford, was sentenced at Stafford Crown Court on Monday (18 July) to 45 months in jail after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs – cocaine, being in possession of class A drugs – heroin and acquiring criminal property.
The court heard how officers attended and searched an address in Stafford on 23 December 2021.
Packages containing class A drugs, including two packages of 54.2 grams of cocaine, were seized by officers.
The drugs seized was valued up to £9,250.
Officers also found and seized over £8,000 in cash. In addition, they found two gold bars, overall worth over £8,000.
Sergeant Thomas Fotherby of Staffordshire Police, said: “Khan attempted to conceal the drugs in items that he hoped officers wouldn’t spot, and 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."
