But as they approached the property they noticed a strong smell of cannabis. A search saw a man arrested after 26 wraps of crack cocaine and nine wraps of heroin were found in his trouser pockets.
The man gave the name of James Cordon, but following enquiries, it was confirmed the arrested man was really 20-year-old Kyran Frue.
Frue, of Dudley Road, Rowley Regis, pleaded guilty on 7th October at Stafford Crown Court to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs. He was jailed for 25 months for each count, the sentences to run concurrently.
PC Stephen Windridge, of Staffordshire Police, said: “We will not tolerate drug dealing in Staffordshire and will continue to work hard to bring those who think they can bring drugs into the county before the courts.”
