A Rotherham man who stashed drugs in his trousers has been jailed for more than four years after admitting possession with intent to supply.

Martin Hughes, 45, of Churchill Avenue, Maltby was sentenced at Sheffield Crown Court on Tuesday (3 April) to four-and-a-half years after officers caught him with more that £1,100 of heroin and crack cocaine.

Hughes (pictured) had previously been arrested on suspicion of possession of crack cocaine but failed to answer police bail.

When officers visited his home to arrest him, he was found with crack cocaine and heroin as well as £300.

Investigating officer DC Darren Walker said: “Without doubt the streets of Maltby and surrounding areas are safer now that Hughes is behind bars.

“Hughes initially denied supplying drugs despite evidence on his phone showing messages from people asking for drugs.

“I hope his sentence shows that dealing drugs will lead you to prison and South Yorkshire Police will continue to pursue those putting lives at risk by breaking the law.”
