A man was yesterday (9 February) sentenced to 6 months in prison after police found Class B drugs with a street value of around £900 at his home.

Jagtar Singh Dhinsay of Wymering Avenue, on the Oaklands Estate near 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: “This 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.

“I 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.”

Can we have an apology please for the people of Ashmore Park. Wymering Ave is not on Ashmore Park but is on the Oaklands Est. Please check your facts before you print them.

Irene – the location refers to the vicinity (we could have said ‘Wednesfield’ or ‘Wolverhampton’ had we chosen to), however as the actual road name is mentioned in the article I think it is pretty clear to those reading where the offender lived.

As an Ashmore Park resident of course I don’t want to taint the area with an unfair image, however at the end of the day this article was a *positive* one highlighting the great work our local Police unit is doing and the fact that a public tip-off led to this arrest – both of which are positives for the community.

As stated at the footer of the article our source is Wolverhampton Police, this information came directly from their press release.

I will however amend the article to “Ashmore Park / Oaklands” to clarify this.

Cheers, James

lets be honest, you couldn’t “taint ashmore park with an unfair image” i’ve seen what it is at first hand, it’s getting worse, I’ve lived here all my life, and I hate it, over the last 12 months ive watched the druggie over the road collecting its fix, then watch it try and break into my car, I know these things happen everywhere but dont paint ashmore park like its somewhere wonderful, it was a great place to live, but now I hate it. sorry but thats just how i feel.
