A drug dealer who was found to be in possession of thousands of pounds worth of cocaine and cannabis has been jailed.

Jordan Walker, 23, was pulled over by police as he drove along Robin Hood Way, The Meadows, on 19 October 2019.

Officers found a large quantity of cannabis on the rear passenger seat of his car and later discovered cocaine in Walker’s possession.

The cocaine had an estimated street value of around £5,000 and the cannabis was valued at around £2,200.

Two mobile phones and more than £500 in cash were also recovered from the scene.

Walker, of Clifton, refused to engage with officers when we was interviewed and answered no comment to most of the questions posed to him.

He later admitted to one count of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply, and one count of possessing a class B drug with intent to supply.

Appearing at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday) morning he was jailed for two-and-a-half years.

PC Ken Tinley, of Nottinghamshire Police’s specialist Knife Crime Team, pulled Walker over and led the subsequent investigation. He said: “Illegal drugs are a blight on our communities and bring misery and despair to the lives of often vulnerable people. They are a significant cause of violent and acquisitive crime and we will not tolerate those who make their living selling them on our streets.

“When we sight suspicious vehicles that we have reason to believe are involved in the illegal drugs trade we will pull them over and we will search them. In this case our suspicions proved well-founded and Walker has quite rightly ended up in prison. I hope this case serves as a warning to others involved in the illegal drugs trade that it really is not safe to transport their illegal wares on our roads.”
