Ashmore Park / Oaklands man jailed for drugs offences
A man was yesterday (9 February) sentenced to 6 months in prison after police found Class B drugs with a street value of around Â£900 at his home.
Jagtar Singh Dhinsay of Wymering Avenue, on the Oaklands Estate nearÂ Ashmore Park, admitted one count of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
Officers from the Wednesfield north neighbourhood police team arrested the 37-year-old after executing a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act at his home address on Sunday 7 November 2010 (as previously reported).
A search of the property uncovered a quantity of herbal cannabis along with other drugs paraphernalia.
Police have thanked members of the local community for the information that, along with further intelligence, led to the warrant being carried out.
PC Richard Miller from the Wednesfield north neighbourhood police team, said: â€œThis conviction is the result of a real team effort between the police and local community which has prevented a significant quantity of drugs from reaching our streets.
â€œI would like to thank members of the local community for coming forward and would encourage anyone with information about suspected drug activity in the area to get in touch.â€
