A man has been jailed after he was found with heroin and cocaine in Hatfield.
Tyler Savill, of no fixed abode, was found guilty of possession of the class A drugs with intent to supply at St Albans Crown Court on Friday (March 6).
The 22-year-old was arrested in Market Place on November, 12 2018 by Operation Scorpion - a special unit of officers who tackle acquisitive crime - who found Savill in possession of eight wraps of cocaine and two wraps of diamorphine (medical heroin). This was along with hundreds of pounds worth of cash.
He was then arrested and officers seized his drugs and cash.
On Friday, the court sentenced him to four years and six months in prison.
His cash was also forfeited and his cocaine and heroin will be destroyed. His phone, which he used to carry out his dealing, will also be destroyed.
