A 30-YEAR-OLD has been jailed for six years for drugs and robbery offences.

Maxim Brown, of Hamsey Road, was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court on Friday after pleading guilty to possession of Class A drugs, robbery and attempted robbery.

Brown was immediately arrested after the first street robbery, which took place in the Asda car park at The Crumbles on the evening of October 8.

He threatened the victim with a weapon and stole his wallet.

Upon his arrest, Brown was found to be in possession of heroin. He was charged with robbery and possession of class A drugs and appeared before court.

While on conditional bail, Brown then went on to threaten and demand cash from a taxi driver while in Carlisle Road in the early hours of the morning of November 15.

Due to the taxi driver’s quick-thinking, he was able to lock Brown in his vehicle until police arrived and arrested him.
