A NORTHFIELD man has been jailed for seven-and-half-years for drugs possession with intent to supply class A drugs and production and supplying cannabis.
Shaun Jones, aged 36, from Clee Road, was sentenced at Warwick Crown Curt after being caught in Shrewsbury.
He was arrested when he was driving an Audi on false registration plates and had failed to stop for West Mercia Police.
A pursuit followed and when officers stopped him a search of his car led to class A drugs, mobile phones and cash being found and seized.
A search of his home address in Clee Road, Birmingham later revealed he was also producing cannabis, and his phones contained evidence of the supply of crack cocaine, heroin and cannabis.
Det Sgt Steve Miller, from West Mercia Police, welcomed the sentence, saying it demonstrated neither the force nor the courts would tolerate drug-dealing in local communities.
“Tackling drugs is a force priority and we will continue to pursue those involved and to work closely with our communities who share vital intelligence with us so that we can help protect people from harm.”
He urged anyone concerned about drug-dealing happening in their street or area to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Information can also be submitted to Crimestoppers – at crimestoppers.org.uk or by calling 0800 555 111.
