A man has been jailed for drugs supply offences after he was stopped-and-searched in Newcastle-under-Lyme last March. Gerhard Smith, aged 20, from Wolverhampton, was sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court last week to 27 months behind bars, after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin, at an earlier hearing.
DC Philip Pegg, of the Northern Crime Support team at Staffordshire Police, said:” We are proactive in our pursuit of offenders and this is another example of the work we complete on a daily basis to ensure those responsible for dealing drugs in our communities are dealt with robustly.”
