PC Andy Savidge said: “The quantity of drugs in Kilroy’s possession demonstrated that he was supporting a large scale supply in Peterborough.

“He attempted to deter police from his home by storing his drugs in public places.

“His actions showed a distinct lack of regard for the safety of others as they were in areas where children could have come into contact with them.”
