Investigating officer Det Con Chris Biggs, said: “Slater was using the railway as a method of transporting his drugs haul. Thankfully due to his apprehension these illegal substances never made it onto the streets.
“As a result Slater finds himself facing a lengthy jail term which reinforces the message that we will not tolerate the transportation of controlled drugs or offensive weapons on the railway. It will not go unnoticed and robust action will be taken by British Transport Police.”
