Man jailed after heroin and cocaine found in pockets

A man who tried to give false details on arrest in Lichfield has been jailed for two years for drugs offences after heroin and cocaine were found in his pockets.

Police attended a flat in Aiden Court Road, Lichfield, on 13 June 2017 in an attempt to arrest another man who had failed to appear at court.

While approaching the flats there was a significant smell of cannabis. Officers entered and searched and arrested a man after 26 wraps of crack cocaine and nine wraps of heroin were found in his trouser pockets.

Cannabis, mobile phones and £430 cash were also seized. The drugs were later found to have a street value of £360 - £620.

The man gave the name of James Cordon, however following enquiries, it was confirmed the arrested man was really 20-year-old Kyran Frue.

Frue, of Dudley Road, Rowley Regis, pleaded guilty on 7 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.”
