A man has been jailed after pure amphetamine with an estimated street value of £2.6m was found in a bedroom, police said.

Mohammed Basherat Din of Firshill Road, Sheffield was sentenced to three years in prison at Sheffield Crown Court.

Din, 38, pleaded guilty to possession of a class B drug with intent to supply at a court hearing last year.

South Yorkshire Police officers raided his home in 2013 and uncovered the drug inside three large shopping bags.

More than 30 small wraps of amphetamine were also recovered from a freezer.

The raid found amphetamine that was of "high-quality", said the force.

Det Con Matt Jackson said: "The swift action of the officers involved means a large quantity of amphetamine has been prevented from reaching the streets of South Yorkshire."
