The Derby Telegraph reports

Police searching for a wanted man stumbled on a cannabis dealer who had been selling the drug across the streets of Derby for five months.

Aaron Barker was seen in Derby city centre on November 3 2020 at the wheel of a blue Audi A3 and was searched after police incorrectly believed he was wanted for another offence.

But police then became suspicious of Barker, 32, and a search later found cannabis in his pocket.

A search of his home on Uttoxeter New Road, Derby uncovered drug paraphernalia such as bags and cannabis weighing 8.5 grams, with a value of up to £130.

He later pleaded guilty to supplying cannabis between May and November 2020 and possession with intent to supply cannabis.

Amy Earnshaw, prosecuting, told Derby Crown Court that analysis of Barker’s phone revealed several references to “double lemonade”, “tangerine dream”, “cherry skittles” and “lemon haze”, all forms of cannabis which Barker was supplying to friends and their associates.

Barker, who has seven convictions for 14 offences prior to sentencing, gave no comment at interview and had previously been convicted of possession of Class A and C drugs in 2016.

William Bennett, defending, said his client was “not a very efficient drug dealer” and had now picked up a part-time job as he tried to move on with his life.
