A 23-year-old Nottingham man has been handed a two-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to possessing drugs with the intent to supply.

Officers tried to stop a white Seat Ibiza in Beech Avenue, Sandiacre, on April 13, 2017 – after receiving intelligence that it was being used to deal drugs.

The car failed to stop and was found soon after outside a derelict house in Sycamore Crescent.
Dylan Mitchell approached officers telling them that he was the driver of the vehicle and gave himself up.

He was arrested and a further search of his home in Beech Avenue, Sandiacre, took place where officers discovered crack cocaine and more than £2,500 in cash in a safe.

Mitchell, of Finsbury Avenue, Nottingham, pleaded guilty to three offences – possession with intent to supply cocaine and MDMA and possessing criminal property – at Nottingham Crown Court on January 29.
He was handed a two-year prison sentence that was suspended for two years.
