A MAN has been jailed for three years after drugs with a street value of over £350,000 were found in a property he was renting.

Daniel Hudson of Harport Road in Greenlands appeared before Worcester Crown Court on Monday (April 2) for sentencing after previously admitting production of cannabis and possession with intent to supply amphetamine, class B drug Methylenedioxypyrovaleron and cannabis bush.

The 30-year-old was given three years in jail for possessing amphetamine with concurrent three year terms for possessing MDPV and two year and six month sentences for the production and possession of cannabis.

More than 11kg of amphetamine, 7kg of MPDV - also known as 'super coke' - a large quantity of cannabis bush and more than 200 cannabis plants were found when police executed a search warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act at an unoccupied house in Ombersley Close, Woodrow, in July 2011.

The court also heard Hudson had previously received a six year jail sentence in 2002 for supplying cannabis, following the importation of 300kg of the drug.

Det Con Eleanor Jones of West Mercia Police said the property had been used in effect as a drugs factory, with bedrooms converted and furniture removed to make space for the drugs.

"We were informed of the smell of drugs coming from the property and when we executed a search warrant found various drugs with a combined street value of more than £350,000.

"The sentence handed out by the court reflects the seriousness of the offences and it is pleasing to know Hudson will be off our streets for some time to come. Hopefully it will act as a warning to toehrs who are either involved or intent on drug dealing."

Any information about drugs can be passed to the police directly by calling 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
