A man has been jailed for two years after he admitted trying to deal cocaine and heroin in Cannock.
Subaan Rafiq, 21, from the Hodge Hill area of Birmingham, was stopped by officers on Heath Street in May 2021.
We searched him and found a wrap of heroin and crack cocaine, as well as two mobile phones which he had been using to sell drugs.
He was arrested at the scene and later admitted to the offences at an earlier court hearing.
Rafiq appeared at Stafford Crown Court on Wednesday (7 June), where he was sentenced to two years behind bars for offering to supply heroin and cocaine.
He was also ordered to pay a surcharge of £190 and to surrender £645 in cash which was found following a search of his address.
Detective Sergeant Jonathan Bradbury said: "These highly addictive and harmful substances have no place on our streets and I'm happy with the proactive action taken to remove them from circulation.
"Those responsible for drug distribution in Staffordshire will be targeted and dealt with as robustly as possible."
The work also comes as we continue to work with West Midlands Police and the Regional Organised Crime Unit to disrupt drug-related activity and organised crime across Staffordshire.
