AN Easton man who held drugs to help pay a £5,000 loan has been jailed for 18 months.
Abukar Abukar stashed almost £1,000 worth of cocaine and heroin in socks secreted under stairs, Bristol Crown Court heard.
Though police found he had £12,000 cash, it could not be proved it was proceeds of crime.
Abukar, 26, of Belton Road, pleaded guilty to possessing class A drugs diamorphine and cocaine in May, but denied possessing criminal property.
Judge Carol Hagen told him: “You put yourself in a position of being vulnerable by someone asking you to look after drugs.
