A drug dealer from Northamptonshire who was caught in possession of more than £1,000 worth of cocaine, cannabis and amphetamines has been given a two-year jail sentence.

Police officers uncovered a significant amount of Class A and B drugs when they raided the home address of Jason Macdonald, aged 30, on June 21 last year.

Northampton Crown Court heard Macdonald, of Gannet Lane, Wellingborough, was hiding 116 grams of amphetamines, a gram of cannabis, a gram of cocaine and three quarters of a gram of heroin in his freezer.

When Macdonald was arrested four days later he was found with a set of scales, £440 in cash and analysis of his text messages indicated that he was dealing drugs.

His Honour Judge Timothy Smith sentenced Macdonald, who pleaded guilty to three charges of possession with intent and one of possession, to two years in prison.

He was also given an extra six weeks in prison for breaching a conditional discharge. He is likely to serve half his sentence in jail before being released on licence.
