A man who was spotted dealing drugs then tried to conceal the stash in his pants has been jailed for three years.

Robert Fitzjohn, 37, was seen by plain clothed officers talking to a man in a vehicle and acting suspiciously in Elwyn Road in March on October 10.

A search revealed a quantity of drugs worth around £1,000 in the vehicle and also in Fitzjohn’s underpants. He was also in possession of more than £400 in cash.

Detective Constable Chris Smith said: “We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to drugs and our priority is to remove dealers. I hope this sends a clear message to those who think this kind of behaviour is acceptable.”

Officers later conducted a search of his home and discovered large quantities of cash.
