Simon McGuirk, also known as Simon Vella, was jailed for three years on Monday at Stafford Crown Court after admitting possession with intent to supply heroin.

The court heard that officers executed a warrant at the home address of the 51-year-old in Stone Road at 7.40am on September 26, 2019.

McGuirk was detained and arrested.

A search of the property revealed class A drugs, mobile phones, cash and drugs paraphernalia.

Officers from Stafford Neighbourhood Policing Team seized crack cocaine, fifteen small packages of heroin, a bag of amphetamines and cannabis vegetation and resin.

The drugs seized were valued at just under £500.

Sergeant Tom Fotherby, of Stafford Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “These drugs were for supply and not just personal use.

“We welcome information about drug dealing in our communities and will continue to bring offenders before the courts.”
