A MAN stopped by police for driving without insurance has been jailed after he was found to be a local drug dealer.

A routine search of Adam Adams’ car found a quantity of cannabis, a knuckleduster and two mobile phones.

A search of his address in Bognor then found cocaine, MDMA, cannabis, amphetamine and LSD, with an estimated street value of some £6,000.

Two sets of scales and plastic bags used for drug dealing were also recovered.

The 26-year-old was initially stopped by police officers in Bognor for driving without insurance on March 31 last year.

Adams, of Aldwick Road, Bognor, admitted five counts of possession of cocaine and cannabis with intent to supply, possession of an offensive weapon (a knuckleduster) and money laundering.

The former fast food restaurant employee was given a 30-month prison sentence at Portsmouth Crown Court.

Detective Constable Molly O'Malley said: "Adams was stopped by an alert roads policing officer in Bognor on 31 March last year for driving with no insurance.

"Adam had little choice but to plead guilty, and this case shows that we continue to take every opportunity to take drugs off the streets and to bring to justice those who try to profit from the trade."
