A man has been sentenced after officers discovered over £2,500 worth of drugs and £1,350 in cash in East Staffordshire.

Jacob Brook, aged 28 of Ashleigh Drive in Uttoxeter, was sentenced to 18-months imprisonment at Stafford Crown Court on Wednesday, June 8, suspended for 24-months, after admitting possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class B and driving a motor vehicle dangerously.

A spokesman for Staffordshire Police said: “The court heard how officers attempted to pull-over Brook’s silver Vauxhall Insignia, which was travelling along Kimberley Drive, Uttoxeter on the evening of October 1, 2020.

Brook failed to stop and led police on a pursuit for several miles, until he was eventually lost after driving dangerously on public roads.

Officers then attended his address on Ashleigh Drive and discovered multiple bags of cannabis, scales and £1,350 in cash.

The cannabis was weighed and estimated to be worth approximately £2,700.”

Detective Sergeant Jon Bradbury, the officer in charge of the case, added: “Officers worked diligently in order to apprehend Brook who put the public in danger in his attempts to hide his criminality.

Brook was profiting from the supply of illegal drugs within our communities and I am happy with our efforts to bring him to justice.”

Brook was ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work, 20 days rehabilitation and has been disqualified from driving for 18-months.
