Drug dealer 'bounced off' glass as he tried to jump from window - court

A drug dealer tried to jump out of an upstairs window when police raided the house he was in, a court heard.

Barry Simm, 34, was in a bedroom when police swooped on the house in Needham Drive, Workington, on October 24 last year.

As they ran up the stairs they heard the sound of smashing glass as he threw a package of drugs out into the front garden.

Then they heard another bang as he tried – and failed – to leap from the window.

“He was trying to get out, banging his head against the glass, but he just bounced off,” prosecuting counsel Brendan Burke told Carlisle Crown Court.

Simm, of Britannia Crescent, Liverpool, was arrested after police found £3,000-worth of heroin, about £1,900-worth of cocaine as well as 17 grams of herbal cannabis.

He admitted possessing the cannabis for his own use and possessing the two class A drugs with intent to supply them and was jailed for 32 months.
