A County Lines drug supplier who led police on a 100mph chase on a motorway hard shoulder before throwing cocaine and heroin from his car window has been jailed.
Kierell Woollery was caught on dash-cam footage discarding the class A drugs from a stolen Ford Fiesta with false plates on October 13, 2017.
Staffordshire Police said the 20-year-old was spotted driving northbound on the M6 and was only brought to a halt by a stinger device deployed by the Central Motorways Policing Group.
The motorway was closed in the area between junctions 14 and 15 near Stone, Staffordshire, as the car reached speeds of 100mph.
As the car’s tyres deflated and it came to a stop, Woollery threw the drugs from the window, which were eventually recovered and forensically examined.
Woollery, of Warley Road, Oldbury, admitted possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine and dangerous driving.
He had also pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine in an earlier hearing after being found with 13.23g of crack cocaine.
Woollery, who was involved in a County Lines supply operation when he was tracked by officers, was jailed for six-and-a-half years at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court on January 24.
Detective Constable Ryan Fone, of Staffordshire Police, said: “This sentence reflects his repeated offending and the seriousness of these incidents.
“The M6 closure caused great disruption but was necessary for safety reasons.
“Woollery tried his best to evade justice by attempting to throw away the heroin and cocaine but it has only resulted in a jail term.”
