At around 2pm on December 18 last year, officers conducted a stop search on Dwyer in Eagle Street in Leamington.

He was found with six grams of cocaine, weighing scales, a mobile phone with drugs-supply related messages and cash on him.

He was arrested and charged, and later pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Det Con Paul Luke from Leamington CID said: “Illegal drugs bring misery to our communities and this conviction is another example of our officers doing all they can to remove the supply of them from our streets.

“If anyone has any information about the production or supply of drugs in their community please let us know and we will act on it.”
