A PENSNETT man caught drug dealing for a third time has been put behind bars for three years, 10 months.

When police officers armed with a warrant went to the home of Harry Edwards, aged 39, they found him in possession of three wraps of heroin.

Then, when they searched the property in Queen Street, the officers found a bag containing a further 13 wraps of the controlled drug.

They also recovered drug dealing paraphernalia including digital scales, Howard Searle, prosecuting told Wolverhampton Crown Court.

He said Edwards had been jailed in 1999 and again in 2002 for possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

Edwards pleaded guilty to possessing heroin with intent to supply and also possessing a small amount of crack cocaine.

Judge John Warner told him he had a "bad record going back many years" for offences of dishonesty, burglary, violence, perverting the course of justice and possessing drugs.

Malcolm Fowler, defending, said Edwards, a father-of-two, had "struggled, succeeded and failed" in his bid to deal with his drug addiction.

But he maintained to the judge that he now wanted to turn his life around and stay out of further trouble with police.
