Phillip Keary of no fixed address was unaware he was being watched by police when he drove into a hotel car park in Witchford Road, Ely in September last year.

Officers approached the 53-year-old and found two Kinder eggs containing 15 packages of heroin and crack cocaine, along with a tablet computer and some cash.

A court heard how when officers were searching Keary's vehicle, the tablet rang.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and was jailed for three years at Cambridge Crown Court on January 16.
