Mehdi Daif attempted to run from police officers after he was stopped at Providence Street, near London Road, on October 2 this year.
But Norwich Crown Court heard how the 20-year-old was quickly caught and found with 33 wraps of crack cocaine and 24 wraps of heroin.
Daif, who appeared in court via videolink, was sentenced to 40 months in a young offender’s institution.

Hisgrove, of Goulburn Road, Norwich admitted wounding with intent and last month was sentenced to three years in prison.

Gugu, who admitted the offences, was due back before city magistrates in October to face charges of failing to comply with a community order, by failing to attend without reasonable excuse on September 18.
This month she admitted breaching a court order and was sentenced to a total of 16 weeks in prison.

He was sentenced to 14 weeks in custody and banned from driving for 19 weeks.
• Max Bond
Max Bond, 27, had gone round to his ex-partner’s home in Norwich when he confronted the victim, who was in the bedroom at the address, Norwich Crown Court heard on Monday.
