A south London drug dealer who hid 157 wraps of crack cocaine in a fake beer can has been jailed. 

Sean Lutchman, 36, of Mitcham Road in Tooting, was first arrested in January 2021 after police linked him to drug dealing in Cambridge. 

Then on March 6 last year police in the city were carrying out enquiries at a house when they found a fake beer can containing 157 wraps of crack. 

Lutchman was inside the property but claimed he was “just having a lie down”. 

When searched officers also found 33 wraps of heroin, with a combined street value of more than £2,400, in his sock. 

Mobile phones and £300 in cash were also discovered. 

He was bailed with instructions not to enter Cambridge and to report to Brixton Police Station daily. 

But in October last year he was back in Cambridge and police enquiries revealed he’d been sending someone else to sign at Brixton Police Station. 

Last Wednesday (March 13) at Huntington Law Courts he was sentenced to six years and 11 months after being convicted of being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin and possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin, as well as perverting the course of justice.
