Class A Dealer Jailed For More Than Three Years
A man who ran off when he saw police on patrol was arrested and found carrying nearly 300 wraps of class A drugs and a weapon.
Twenty-six-year-old Benjamin Wylie was caught in possession of 196 wraps of crack cocaine and 99 wraps of heroin - worth a combined total of around £3,000 - bundled into three packages.
He also had an extendable baton which he dropped while trying to run away from officers in Welbeck Street, Mansfield, at 9.30am on 13 December 2019.
Wylie, of Rodwell Close, Beechdale, pleaded guilty to two charges of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and a charge of possession of an offensive weapon when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court last Monday (13 January).
He was jailed for three years and four months at the same court last Friday (17 January).
Detective Sergeant Dean O’Sullivan, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "This is an excellent piece of proactive police work that removed a large quantity of class A drugs from the streets of Mansfield.
"Nottinghamshire Police will not tolerate drug dealing of any sort and the substantial sentence should act as a deterrent to anyone involved in this type of criminal activity.”
