A man who was caught with Class A drugs in Crawley has been jailed for a year.

Orrin Alexander, 24, of no fixed address, was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court on October 1.

He had pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine, and to possessing cocaine with intent to supply.

The court heard that he was arrested in High Street on August 12 this year.

Judge Shani Barnes ordered that the drugs should be destroyed.

Prosecutors said they plan to seize Alexander’s illegal earnings under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

A date for that hearing has not yet been set.
