A drug dealer has been jailed for three years after we seized crack cocaine and more than £1,600 in cash in Cannock.
Adam Evans, 39, from Cannock, was stopped in a car park on Beecroft Road in October last year.
We seized a mobile phone, a small quantity of cash, six wraps of crack cocaine and two bank receipts.
Officers then searched a property in Cannock and found £1,640 in cash and 26 wraps of crack cocaine.
Evans was questioned about the findings in custody and later charged with drug supply offences.
He was sentenced at Stafford Crown Court on 29 January after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, supplying crack cocaine and possessing criminal property.
Detective Sergeant Jonathan Bradbury, who oversaw the case, said: “I’m happy we’ve been able to jail another dealer who was intent on distributing harmful drugs within our communities.
“Officers across the force are committed to proactively targeting drug supply and will continue to act on intelligence leads and reports from the public to bring these people to justice.”
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.
