A man found with nearly £4,600 worth of cocaine has been jailed for three and a half years.
Shane Taylor, 27, was staying at the Premier Inn, Polegate, when police carried out the search.
Lewes Crown Court heard that they found £4,600 worth of the class A drug along with scales and £255.20 in cash.
The court made a destruction order for the drugs and seized the cash under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
