A Harwich man has been jailed for more than three years after cocaine and cannabis worth about £28,000 was seized by police.
Daryl Warner, 24, of no fixed address, was tracked down by officers following a trail of seizures which began with the discovery of a Vauxhall Combo van containing freezer bags of cannabis, plastic boxes of cocaine and a set of scales in Main Road on January 14.
No one was inside the van, which did not have insurance, but police later executed a search warrant at an address in the same road on January 17.
On searching the property, police found quantities of cocaine hidden inside two suitcases.
Officers then searched another property, in Old Vicarage Road on January 27, where 27 bags of cocaine and drug paraphernalia were found.
