UK: Police find 1kg stash of cannabis hidden inside barbecue at man’s home in Mapperley

A drug dealer has been jailed after police found a kilogram of cannabis hidden inside a barbecue at his Mapperley home.

Officers also discovered bags containing substantial amounts of amphetamines when they raided Kash Brookes’ former home and garden.

Thirty-one-year-old Brookes initially denied any knowledge of the drugs and tried to blame a former tenant of the property.

However, he was convicted of two counts of possession with intent to supply drugs and one of supplying drugs, and jailed for a total of 27 months at Nottingham Crown Court on Thursday (9).

Brookes’ offending activated a previous conviction for the production of cannabis, for which he had been given a suspended sentence.

Acting on intelligence, police raided Brookes’ home on October 4, 2020 where they found the large haul of drugs, as well as drug packaging and substantial amounts of cash.

Brookes’ fingerprints were found on a vacuum pack which contained the cannabis and on a black bin liner which the drugs had been wrapped inside.

Mobile phones which were seized by officers also revealed further evidence of Brookes’ drug dealing and other criminality.
