A LABOURER was jailed for more than three years after he pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine with intent to supply.

Gregory Peake, 34, of Garden Road, Bickley, was sentenced to three years and three months at Croydon Crown Court last Monday.

Another charge of offering to supply a controlled drug was put on file.

Meanwhile, another man arrested in May on suspicion of possessing cocaine with intent to supply has escaped with a caution.

Christopher Lilley, 28, of Victoria Road, Bromley, denied a charge of possession of cannabis and cocaine at Bromley Magistrates' Court on June 3, electing for trial at Crown Court.

He was due to reappear at Bromley Magistrates' Court last Tuesday to set a date for a trial by jury but the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) ruled that he should receive a caution. A spokesman for the CPS was unavailable for comment.
