A man who smashed a car window with a machete and was then caught with class A drugs stashed in a pillowcase has been jailed.

Isaac Isa-Herd, 21, was in Broadway, Yaxley, on May 19, when he saw a woman his girlfriend had fallen out with.

Isa-Herd produced a machete, smashed a window of the woman’s car and left marks on the paintwork.

The victim called police, but when they attended they could not find Isa-Herd. Officers phoned him and he agreed to hand himself in that evening.

He was charged and released on bail, and then on 1 October officers attended a property in Shakespeare Avenue, Peterborough, where he was found with 39 wraps of crack cocaine and 91 of heroin worth up to £1,350.
