Another drug dealer off our West Mids streets!
A drug dealer has been jailed for eight years after West Midlands Police caught him with a stash of heroin and crack cocaine plus a stun gun disguised as a torch.
Sandeep Singh was stopped by officers driving his illegally funded BMW in Wellesley Road, Oldbury, in November 2017.
The 25-year-old ran off – discarding items as he fled – but was quickly detained and a search of the area recovered a ‘Taser’ made to look like a torch, a BMW car key and his mobile phone.
A subsequent search of Singh’s home in Charter Road, Tipton, revealed heroin and crack cocaine wraps with a value of £1,330, 35 capsules of steroids, more than £6,000 in cash and a set of digital scales.
He was charged with possessing drugs with intent to supply and at Wolverhampton Crown Court on 10 January was handed an eight-year jail sentence and disqualified from driving for five years. West Midlands Police will also look to seize the recovered cash through a Proceeds of Crime (POCA) application.
Detective Sergeant Daniel Cartwright from West Bromwich CID said:
“This was a great piece of police work that has resulted in drugs and a dangerous weapon being taken off our streets.”
