A man caught with crack cocaine and heroin after a car chase in Fazeley has been jailed for more than four years.
Adam Ward, 26, of Kilburn Road, Birmingham, was sentenced to four years and one month for aggravated vehicle taking, possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, possession with intent to supply heroin, failing to stop for a PC, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance.
He was sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court after pleading guilty to all offences.
Ward was arrested on June 6 after being pursued in Fazeley. Driving a stolen Mercedes on false plates, he spotted a police vehicle and started to drive erratically and reaching speeds of 60mph on Two Gates in Tamworth. He crashed into a lamppost and ran off and was seen to throw a plastic tub with 28 wraps of crack cocaine and 21 wraps of heroin.
Sgt Gary Harborow said: “We welcome this sentence handed down by the courts to this individual who has committed a number of offences including possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.
“The message is clear: we will not tolerate drug-dealing and the misery it brings in Staffordshire. We will bring you before the courts.”
