A drug dealer who tried to travel through Norfolk with a stash of drugs under his car bonnet has been sent to jail.

Jason Brown, 48, of Walnut Way, Dereham, was jailed for two years at Norwich Crown Court yesterday after he had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to possessing amphetamine with intent to supply and a separate charge of possessing cannabis.

Brown was pulled over and searched by police on the A47 at Terrington St Clement, near King's Lynn, on April 12.

Officers discovered a 2kg package of white powder under the bonnet of his car which tests later proved was amphetamine, also known as speed. A police search of his home discovered further evidence of drug dealing.

King's Lynn and West Norfolk Superintendent Nick Davison said: “Police patrols are carried out on Norfolk's roads day and night to respond to calls and target suspected criminals. This was a significant amount of drugs which was prevented from hitting Norfolk's streets.”
