A man caught in Huntingdon with class A drugs stashed inside a Kinder Egg has been jailed.
Craig Stark, 35, (pictured) was spotted engaging in a drug deal by officers on patrol in Huntingdon on 3 August, 2018.
As they approached, Stark and two other men fled but they managed to detain Stark after a struggle.
On him they found cocaine and heroin hidden in a Kinder Egg, and more drugs in his room at a B&B hostel, worth more than £600 altogether.
He pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs and was jailed for 26 months today (Monday 25th February).
Sergeant Michael Basford said:
“Drugs devastate lives and cause misery for our communities.
Often drug dealing and violence go hand-in-hand, making it vital that we catch the perpetrators and bring them to justice.”
