A Loughborough man has been jailed after he admitted his involvement in the supply of class A drugs.
Muhammed Ashpak Chowdhury was arrested at his home address in December last year after officers acted on information received in relation to the supply of heroin and crack cocaine.

When officers searched the property, they discovered large quantities of drugs, equipment used to prepare the drugs for dealing on the streets and more than £4,000 in cash.
A flat also associated with 27-year-old Chowdhury was searched and burner phones and a live bullet were found in the property.
At his first court appearance at Leicester Magistrates’ Court, Chowdhury, of Bridgeland Road, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A (heroin), possession with intent to supply class A (cocaine), possession of criminal property and possession of ammunition for a firearm without a certificate.
On Tuesday (4 January) he was sentenced at Leicester Crown Court to three years in prison.
DC Damian Young was the investigating officer, he said: “This case demonstrates how information received led to the arrest and conviction of an individual for the supply of class A drugs. Chowdhury had no choice but to plead guilty to the offences and we are pleased that he has taken responsibility for his actions.
“We would encourage people to contact us if they have any suspicions about drugs misuse and let us investigate it further and bring people to justice.”
