A 55-year-old man has been jailed for 18 months after cannabis worth around £6,000 was seized during a raid in Runcorn.

Ian Ainge, of Davenport Row, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to supply class B drugs (cannabis) and possession of class C drugs (tramadol) when police raided the address at around 12.30pm on May 29.

Officers also recovered a quantity of cannabis, tramadol, cash and a number of weapons including a machete and a stun gun.

He later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 months in prison at Chester Crown Court on Tuesday (July 21).

“I hope that this result will act as a deterrence to those who believe that they can get away with drug activities in Runcorn.

“Illegal drugs can have a detrimental impact on the local community, so it is crucial that we work to stamp out this type of crime."

Police and Crime Commissioner David Keane said: “Officers across the Constabulary are working tirelessly to end the misery that illegal drugs can bring to communities.

“I am pleased that Runcorn’s beat management team have prevented these drugs from reaching the town’s streets and although this investigation has now concluded, I know that Cheshire Constabulary ’s fight against those who blight our neighbourhood with illegal drugs continues.

“I would urge anyone with information about suspected drug activity in their community to contact Cheshire Police.”
