A drug dealer has admitted hiding 120 wraps of crack cocaine in his underpants.

Darren Gyan, of Church Street, Stratford, was stopped during a routine car check by officers in Harlow in June last year.

They smelt cannabis and seized a small bag of it but found the class A drugs during a search in custody.

The 20-year-old was charged with one count of possession of class A drugs with intent to supply and one count of possession of class B drugs.

He admitted both counts at Chelmsford Crown Court and on Thursday last week was sentenced to 24 months in a young offender institution.
