• Green was sentenced for the drugs offences alongside three other men after an investigation by Norfolk Police.

The force conducted inquiries throughout May 2010. They watched Jason Cook, 39, from Hillington Square, King’s Lynn, Thomas Cunningham, 31, of Hillburn Road, Wisbech, and Green travel to Kirkham’s Lane travellers’ site, in Wisbech, where they collected amphetamines held in a plastic tub.

The three men returned to Fundery Road, in Wisbech, where Cook was seen to leave the car with a black bin bag containing the drugs.

Cook handed the drugs to Green and both left to drive to King’s Lynn. A police car attempted to stop the pair and a pursuit took place.

Cook and Green were arrested in West Lynn while Cunningham and a fourth man were arrested later.

Cook admitted dangerous driving and conspiracy to supply drugs. He was sentenced to nine months, suspended for 18 months, and given a 200-hour community service order. He was also disqualified from driving for 12 months.

Cunningham admitted conspiracy to supply drugs and was sentenced to 14 months in prison.

A 32-year-old man from King’s Lynn was sentenced to a community order requiring drug treatment and testing as well as a 12 month supervision order.

Detective Inspector Gary Bloomfield, Senior Investigating Officer, said: “These men have been involved in a drugs supply chain, bringing Class B drugs into the county for onward distribution.

“The unlawful supply of controlled drugs can have a significant, detrimental effect on the quality of life of those living near to where this activity takes place.

“The public can be reassured that any such dealing will be thoroughly investigated and we will do all we can to disrupt these activities, identifying and putting before the courts anyone involved in this type of criminality.”
