A MAN found with hard drugs and a knife tucked into his waistband has been jailed.

Lewis Delbridge Coombes, 34, of no fixed address, was found to be carrying Class A drugs after being stopped by police in Yeovil.

He was sent down for 26 weeks when he appeared at Taunton Magistrates’ Court last Monday (July 11).

He pleaded guilty to two charges of possession of class A drugs (heroin and cocaine) and possession of a bladed article (knife).

He also admitted seven breaches of a Community Protection Notice.

Coombes was stopped after officers were called to reports of a disorder in Eastland Road, Yeovil, on Sunday, July 10.

Officers found the class A drugs and a knife tucked into the back of his waistband.

PC Adam Marsden, of the Yeovil Neighbourhood Policing team, said: “This is a positive result for our communities as it’s taken a quantity of class A drugs and a weapon off the streets of Yeovil.

“We’ll continue targeting those committing drug offences, and we continue to need the public’s help in providing us with information so we can tackle drug crime effectively and break the cycle of offending.”
