A man has been sentenced to nine years in prison after police found cash and large amounts of Class A and Class C drugs in his home.

Andrew Goodwin was arrested and charged with possession with intent to supply heroin and diazepam after officers searched his house back in July 2016.

The 37-year-old of Forest Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield failed to appear at Nottingham Crown Court and a trial commenced in his absence. He was arrested before the trial ended and yesterday (Thursday 18 May) he was found guilty and sentenced.

Police Constable Neil Hollinshead of Nottinghamshire Police said: "This has been an extensive investigation involving local officers, supported by the digital team and drugs experts. It was only possible to search his home after receiving information from members of the public. We are pleased to have gained this conviction and a strong sentence that will act as a deterrent to others involved in drug supply."

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
