A 50-year-old man has been jailed for more than four years after being found with £4,000 of heroin at his home.
Police raided Andrew Gardener’s address on Stone Road, Stafford, on September 19 last year where the drugs were discovered along with a number of mobile phones.
Now Gardener has been sent to prison for a total of 55 months after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A – heroin.
He was locked up for 44 months for the offence, with the rest of the sentence added for breaching a suspended sentence – which will be served consecutively.
Gardener was sentenced at Stafford Crown Court on Monday, February 24.
Detective Constable Howard Davies, from Staffordshire Police CID, said: “Even though Gardener was on a suspended sentence, this didn’t stop him dealing.
“However, he was caught after we searched his home and was brought to justice.
“Those involved in drug crime won’t be tolerated and we’ll continue to put offenders before the courts.”
