A man who was found with cocaine and heroin stuffed between his buttocks, has been jailed for three years.

Terence Tetlow, of Warth Road in Bury, pleaded guilty to possessing class A drugs with the intent to supply.

Manchester Crown Court heard the 28-year-old was caught with the class A drugs, with a street value of £600, in his underpants during a police raid.

Det Insp Sarah Jackson said: "Tetlow was a supplier of class A drugs and his conviction has cut this supply."

The court heard, that on 22 July 2008, police received intelligence of suspicious activity at a house in Kestrel Avenue in Bury.

Later that day, the police searched the house.

Tetlow was found in the kitchen and two other men were also in the house. He refused to be handcuffed and had to be restrained by the officers who conducted a search.

Following his conviction, a police spokeswoman said: "They discovered bags containing white coloured rock which found stuffed in his underpants and between his buttocks.

"He also had a significant amount of cash on him. After a full search, cocaine and heroin weighing six grams was found."

Det Insp Sarah Jackson said: "This result sends a clear message that we will not tolerate the supply of drugs like crack and heroin, which can blight our communities."
