He was searched under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act and found with three mobile phones, £280 cash, 30 wraps of crack cocaine and 15 packages of heroin.

Officers searched his home and discovered further drug paraphernalia.

Sgt Jamie Williams said: “We will continue to put those involved in the production and supply of drugs in the county before the courts. I hope this result will serve as a deterrent to others.”
