HUNT FOR SEX FIEND WHO MOLESTED 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO WAS CYCLING WITH A PAL

DRUG DEALER JAILED FOR THROWING STASH AS HE WAS CHASED BY POLICE

A drug dealer was jailed after being caught on camera littering – cocaine.

Marcus Blackwood was seen on CCTV throwing a bag of white powder on the ground as he was being chased by police, which turned out to be ten wraps of the Class A drug.

Blackwood, 36, was collared by plain-clothed City of London police officers who stopped him in his silver Mercedes.

As police searched the vehicle, Blackwood, from Beckenham, south London, got out of the car and began running away.

CCTV footage shows Blackwood throwing an item, which was a bag containing ten wraps of cocaine, into an underground car park.

When coppers finally caught him, they found five more wraps of cocaine hidden in his underpants.

Police drugs recovery dogs were used to search his home address where a shoe box was discovered containing measuring scales, 12 wraps of cocaine, cutting agents, MDEC (Ethylone) and other drug paraphernalia.

In total, the drugs and cutting agents were estimated to be worth in excess of £30,000.

Detective Inspector Rob Stirling from the City of London Police said: “Due to the weight of evidence and the tenacity of Detective Constable Thomas Hayball, who gave chase and detained him, Blackwood had no choice but to plead guilty to supplying drugs.

“The City of London attracts many people to its thriving nighttime economy, which we welcome.

“We want people to come here to have a good time but at the same time we want them to remain safe.

“We have a zero tolerance to drugs being used or sold here and will continue to be proactive in our approach to stop this from happening.”

He was jailed for four years at the Old Bailey on Tuesday after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply.
