Jamie Dawson (30), had been on the run for four days when police received information and went to the address on 21st November, Nottingham Crown Court heard.

Dawson was arrested and taken to Mansfield police station where two small blocks of cannabis and over 20 tablets, which were class C drugs, were found wrapped in clingfilm and hidden between his legs, the court was told.
