Attleborough man jailed for 18 months after being caught with £6,500 worth of Class A and Class B drugs
An Attleborough man was sentenced to 18 months in prison at Norwich Crown Court on Tuesday after being caught with £6,500 worth of drugs during a raid on his home.
Shane Marshall, 33, of Station Road had entered a plea of guilty to the charges of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and possession of a Class B drug, at an earlier hearing.
On September 20, 2019, a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant was executed at Marshall’s address in Attleborough where officers found a carrier bag containing a large quantity of cannabis, three mobile phones, cocaine in both powder and crystal form, and drug dealing paraphenalia.
Marshall was arrested at the scene, and subsequently charged with the offences.
At Tuesday’s hearing, Marshall was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment and ordered to pay £60 in prosecution costs.
DC Daniel Rayner, of Breckland’s Neighbourhood Policing Team said: "The dangerous consequences of Marshall’s drug dealing will have reached far and beyond Norfolk, but thankfully he will no longer be able to directly damage the community he was a part of.
"We will continue to put a stop to this type of crime, and would encourage anyone who has concerns or information about drug dealing in their local area to contact us on 101. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously online, or by calling 0800 555 111.”
