A WINSFORD drug dealer who stashed heroin and cocaine in a Kinder Surprise capsule between his buttocks has been jailed.

Iain Alexander, of Robinson Lane, was also armed with a taser when police pulled him over on Saxon Crossway on Monday, October 10.

He admitted having no driving licence or insurance straight away. 

When he was searched, officers found a small wrap of brown powder, three mobile phones, and a large sum of money in cash on him. 

Searching the car, they also found a bag containing suspected stolen goods, along with a rectangular shaped keyring which was later found to be a taser.

The 32-year-old was arrested at the scene and taken to Middlewich Custody Suite, where he gave a ‘no comment’ interview.  

After searching him again, officers found a Kinder Surprise capsule hidden between his buttocks which contained wraps of heroin and cocaine.

Meanwhile the mobile phones revealed evidence of his drug dealing.

Alexander appeared at Chester Crown Court for sentencing on Wednesday, November 8, after pleading guilty to one count each of possessing with intent to supply heroin, cocaine, and cannabis.

He also admitted possession of criminal property, possession of a weapon designed to discharge electrical incapacitation, driving without a licence, and driving without insurance.

He was sentenced to three years in prison.

After the sentence hearing, Detective Constable Claire Heatley of Northwich proactive policing team, said: “Our investigation compiled a catalogue of evidence to bring a stop to Alexander’s offending, and despite his refusal to answer any questions in custody, he is now behind bars facing the consequences of his actions.

“This sentence should send a strong message to anyone wanting to bring drugs into Cheshire that this will not be tolerated.
