A 40-year-old man is now serving time behind bars after he was found carrying Spice in Doncaster.

Paul Thompson, of Tew Park Road, Birmingham, was arrested in the town centre on 1 August, after he was seen on CCTV to be selling drugs in the market place.

He was quickly arrested by officers, who were carrying out patrols in relation to antisocial behaviour and spice in the town centre, and brought into custody where he was found to have two wraps of spice in his possession.

Thompson, after entering a guilty plea, appeared before Sheffield Crown Court on Friday 21 September, where he was jailed for ten-months for possession with intent to supply. He was also handed a one month sentence for possession of a Class B drug, namely Spice, to run alongside his ten-month sentence.

PC Mark Roostan, investigating, said: “Tackling the use, possession and distribution of spice, along with antisocial behaviour, is a priority for us and together we have been working hard alongside our partner agencies to do just that.

“We are pleased with the progress we are making and I hope this sends out a clear message that anyone found to be carrying spice will be dealt with robustly. We are committed to making Doncaster town centre a pleasant place to live, work and visit and we want people to feel safe and supported by us.”
