POLICE officers who searched a car at a service area on the A14 at Huntingdon arrested a 24-year-old man after cannabis with a street value of around £1,500 was found, a court has heard.
Timay Denton, of Pauline Street, Ipswich, initially claimed that the 260g of cannabis which was divided into ten bags was for his own use and told officers he used half an ounce of cannabis a day, Ipswich Crown Court was told.
However his lawyer Ian Persaud said although some of the drugs were for Denton’s own use he would have sold some of the cannabis to people he knew for a small profit if he was asked.
Denton admitted possessing cannabis with intent to supply on April 19 and was jailed for nine months.
Sentencing him Judge John Devaux said Denton had a bad record but had no previous convictions for possessing drugs with intent to supply.
He said Denton claimed to have bought the cannabis for £500.
Michael Crimp, prosecuting, said the maximum street value of the cannabis found in Denton’s car was £2,600 and the mid-level value was £1,400 to £1,600.
