Neighbourhood Watch: ‘The message is clear: If you deal drugs, you will be caught.’
Jason Lee Cartier, 33, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply MDMA, amphetamine and cannabis as well as growing cannabis.
It was on the 28th of June this year that police were called to Cartier’s home address of Awsworth Lane after a report of a burglary in progress.
Cartier was found injured at the front of his house after being attacked by two men.
Paramedics started to tend to him but he became aggressive when police officers seized his phone and items of clothing.
He even attempted to get up from the ambulance and walk through a police cordon to stop officers searching his house.
Police discovered he was cultivating a cannabis grow and had packages of amphetamine, ecstasy and other drug paraphernalia inside his home.
Following a trial Cartier was convicted of possessing and supplying controlled drugs.
He was given an eight and a half year prison sentence for the MDMA and cannabis offences, as well as a further four years for the amphetamine offences and the growing of cannabis, to run concurrently.
This result is testament to the tireless work of a very dedicated team of officers.
It also reflects the dim view taken by the criminal justice system of people who infect our communities with controlled drugs and perpetuate the further crime inevitably stemming from them.
The message is clear – ‘If you deal in drugs in Nottinghamshire you will be caught’!
