Norwich drug dealer given custody
A 20 year-old man who was found with crack cocaine and heroin with a street value of about £800 has been given three years in a young offender's institution.
Ryan Dawson was found with the drugs when police searched his Norwich home at West End Street, a court heard.
Andrew Oliver, prosecuting at Norwich Crown Court, said that as well as finding the drugs, officers also seized a set of scales and cash.
Dawson admitted possession of the drugs with intent to supply.
Michael Clare, for Dawson, said he was a low level street dealer.
