A drug dealer has been jailed for more than three years after he was found with class A drugs in Tamworth.
Corrie Plaskitt, 26, from Tamworth, was stopped by proactive officers in the Belgrave area in March this year.
Officers found up to 350 wraps of cocaine and heroin and a small amount of cannabis on him, leading to his arrest.
He was sentenced to 42 months behind bars at Stafford Crown Court on Thursday (24 August) after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin, and possessing cannabis.
Detective Sergeant Jonathan Bradbury, who dealt with the case, said: “Those responsible for drug distribution in Tamworth will be targeted and dealt with as robustly as possible.
“Information and intelligence from our communities is key and, if you report your concerns, then we will take action.
“We will continue to take proactive action against those involved in supplying drugs in Tamworth.”
The activity follows our ongoing commitment to tackling serious and organised crime and protecting those who are at risk of exploitation through criminals – called Operation Target.
Work is continuing to proactively target the groups responsible for these crimes – including county lines, drug distribution, illegal firearms and sexual exploitation.
