Jail after drugs found in home.

A MAN has been jailed after four kinds of illegal drugs were found at his home.

David Jackson, 49, of Queen Alexandra Road in North Shields, was arrested in Walker on August 5 last year, and a search of his house recovered ecstasy, cannabis, diazapam and ketamine.

He appeared at Newcastle Crown Court on May 9 to be sentenced after previously pleading guilty to possessing a class A drug with intent to supply, possessing a controlled drug with intent to supply, possessing a class C drug with intent to supply and possessing class B and class C drugs. He was jailed for 27 months.

There were 431 tablets of ecstasy, 641g of cannabis bush, 593 tablets of diazapam and 59g of ketamine found in his house.

Byker and Walker neighbourhood insp Deborah Alderson said: "Hopefully the sentence passed to Jackson will send a warning out that drug supply in our neighbourhoods will not be tolerated."
