A MAN who was accused of dealing drugs after officers found more than £1,000 of crack cocaine and heroin outside Bicester Village has been jailed.

Prosecutors said that when police arrived to carry out a search Karl Williams 'threw' a mobile phone, which was later found to contain drug dealing messages.

The 34-year-old of Woodbrooke Grove, Birmingham, had denied two counts alleging possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

A jury at Oxford Crown Court, however, found him unanimously guilty of both counts at the end of his trial today.

During the case prosecutor Gabrielle McAvock said the drugs find took place at about 4pm on June 7 last year.

She said that Williams was spotted in a black Jaguar vehicle along with another man at Bicester Village's main public car park.

On searching the car police found the class A drugs in the back of the vehicle.

The court heard that in total officers discovered a haul of drugs worth about £1,040 if sold on the street.

In all there was 4.98g of crack cocaine discovered, made up of 27 cling film wraps, and 4.75g of heroin, made up of 25 cigarette paper wraps.

After the guilty verdicts presiding Judge Nigel Daly proceeded directly to sentence Williams.

He was jailed for a total of five years and six months and he must also pay a victim surcharge.
