Career criminal Travis Burston, 26, was found with three bags of cocaine, cash, and two phones after being seen interacting with a man on a mobility scooter in Hednesford on 10 November.

After both men were stopped and searched on Old Fallow Road, police raided an address nearby where they found £2,000 cash, cocaine, digital scales, empty snap and seal bags, and other drug-related paraphernalia.

Burston, of no fixed address, was arrested and provided no comment throughout his interview.

He went on to admit possessing and supplying Class A drugs and possessing criminal property and was jailed for four years and four months at Stafford Crown Court.

Detective Sergeant Jon Bradbury, of Staffordshire Police, said: “Burston has an extensive criminal history and I’m pleased that the judge saw fit to deliver a custodial sentence.

“We will continue to do all we can to disrupt the drugs supply in Staffordshire and ensure our communities continue to be as safe as possible.”
