A 34-year-old man caught in the act of dealing Class A drugs has been sentenced.

Harrison Wood was spotted by police officers on April 16, 2020, in a Volkswagen Golf that intelligence suggested was involved in drug supply.

Wood was driving the vehicle and it stopped in a car park in Cross Hills, Keighley.

They found five packs of cocaine and £830, and his passenger had 1.45g of cocaine in his possession. There were messages consistent with drug supply on Wood’s mobile phone.

Wood told officers he was doing it because he was addicted to cocaine.

More than £1,500 of drugs were found at Wood’s home in Mulberry Lane, Steeton with Eastburn, including 8.21g of cocaine, 109.8g of cannabis and 29.7g of MDMA.

He pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine and cannabis, supplying cocaine and possession of MDMA.

Recorder Anthony Hawks said Wood had been heavily using drugs and run up significant debts, before being caught dealing red-handed.

He said Wood had been lucky that there had been a delay in the case coming to court, otherwise he would have been jailed immediately.

He received a two-year jail term, suspended for 18 months. An order was made for the forfeiture and destruction of the drugs.
