A man has been sentenced for possession of a knife, and trying to obstruct an officer from carrying out a drugs warrant in Belper.

Cameron Henry (20) of Watkins Street, Swansea, pleaded guilty to both offences, which happened in May this year at a property on Acorn Drive.

He was given a three month custodial sentence for possession of a lock knife, and a three month custodial sentence for obstructing an authorised person in the exercise of powers under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Both sentences are to be served concurrently to a separate case involving Mr Henry, at a hearing at Derby Crown Court on Thursday, November 15.

The separate case involved a gang which cuckooed a property in Derby, near to Kedleston Road, to use as a base to sell drugs.

Mr Henry was pleaded guilty to supplying Class A drugs as part of that case and has been jailed for a total of four years and nine months.

Inspector Dave Parker, who is in charge of policing in the Amber Valley, said: “Our officers continue to work to target those who commit crime in our community, and to bring them to justice, to ensure that our area remains a safe place to live, work and visit.”
