The phones were found to show messages related to the supply of Class A and B controlled drugs.

Morgan was later charged with the offences and subsequently pleaded guilty at court.

Last Wednesday he was sentenced to 42 months in prison for possession with intent to supply Class A Cocaine and Class B Cannabis.

Investigating officer Det Con Matthew Rapkins from Rugby Proactive CID said: “We welcome the custodial sentence which reflects the serious nature of the offence committed.

“The public play a vital role in making us aware of suspicious activity, and we continue to ask anyone who suspects drug dealing in their area to please let us know.”
