He was found with 6.57 grams of crack cocaine and 3.71 grams of heroin concealed on his person, and was arrested for possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Whilst released under investigation, Scrivens was arrested by West Midlands Police for death by dangerous driving in connection with a fatal collision in Darlaston on 22 November 2017. He is currently serving a 7.5 year prison sentence for this offence.

At Friday's court appearance, Scrivens pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply heroin and one count of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine. He was sentenced to two years in prison, to be added to his current sentence.

Following the sentencing, investigating officer PC Thomas Fletcher from the Operational Patrol Unit, West Mercia Police said: "The misery drugs bring are well known, not just to those who take them but those around them and the local community.

"I hope today's sentence shows that we won't tolerate drug dealing in our communities and will proactively target those we believe to be involved, utilising the powers we have to make sure their activity is disrupted."

The investigation is part of West Mercia Police's commitment to tackling serious and organised crime as part of the force's Protect campaign.

The broad-ranging operation covers four key areas of activity:

  •     Pursue - prosecuting and disrupting those involved in SOC
  •     Prevent - stopping individuals from becoming involved in SOC
  •     Protect - increased levels of protection against SOC
  •     Prepare - reducing the impact of SOC where it occurs
