Lichfield man jailed for dealing cannabis

Police have described the three year jail sentence handed down to a Lichfield drug dealer as a significant result.

Stafford Crown Court heard that on 3 February this year police had routinely stopped a Toyota Ago in Ivanhoe Road, Lichfield at around 4pm. 

Police found cannabis, £200 in cash, two mobile phones and a kitchen knife in Rhys Cowan's car.

The 21-year-old, of Dovehouse Fields, pleaded guilty to a number of offences relating to the possession of class A, B and C drugs with intent to supply.

Sergeant Karen Green, of Lichfield District Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This is a significant result and we’re glad for the support of the local community. 

“Cowan was jailed as a result of an effective stop and search and an ongoing operation conducted by police community support officers (PCSOs) who worked with the local community to gather evidence and build a case.” 

Further items were seized at a house search.
