Rapper Mitch Jailed After Attempting to Flee Proactive Officers
A drug dealer, identified as Kwame Giwa, 34, from Birmingham, has been handed a three-year-and-three-month prison sentence by Stafford Crown Court on Monday, January 29. This sentencing came subsequent to Giwa's admission of guilt for possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A (cocaine), possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A (heroin), and involvement in the supply of cocaine.
The incident unfolded when proactive officers intercepted an Audi Q2 on Laurel Grove, Stafford, on Monday, October 9, the previous year. Observing Giwa as a passenger in the vehicle, he promptly disembarked and attempted to evade capture, discarding a white iPhone as he fled.
Despite his efforts to escape by vaulting over garden fences, law enforcement apprehended and arrested Giwa. Subsequently, officers intercepted the Audi in Longton, discovering within it a container containing 70 wraps of crack cocaine, two wraps of heroin, and a sum of £888 in cash.
Detective Constable Richard Williams, who oversaw the case, remarked, “This is another significant triumph and represents the removal of yet another drug dealer from the streets of Staffordshire. We are unwavering in our commitment to actively pursue and prosecute individuals bent on inflicting harm upon our communities through drug distribution.”
This sentencing aligns with our steadfast dedication to proactively combatting serious and organised crime throughout Staffordshire.
In May of the preceding year, we launched Operation Target, collaborating with local law enforcement agencies to disrupt and pursue criminals orchestrating serious criminal activities across the county, including drug trafficking, illegal possession of firearms, knife-related offenses, human trafficking, and sexual exploitation.
