A 19-year-old man was caught trying to flush crack cocaine down a toilet when police raided a house.
Liam Malvern was found sitting on a toilet with his trousers by his ankles when officers gained entry to a property in Orford, near Warrington.
They believed he had been disposing of drugs during the raid on the house in Watkin Street.
Following a search almost £200 was recovered from his trouser pocket.
Police also seized two mobile phones, a debt list found on the kitchen worktop with handwritten names and amounts on and two train tickets.
After examining the mobile phones officers uncovered Malvern had been visiting the address on a regular basis and offering drugs to users.
Malvern, from Dam Wood Road in Speke, was sentenced to three years and six months at Liverpool Crown Court on March 23 after pleading guilty to being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine.
Detective Sergeant Tom Hall, from Warrington Beat Initiative Team, said: "Malvern had only just been released from prison after admitting supplying heroin and crack cocaine when he was caught once again by my team.
"He thought he could flush away the drugs and no police action would be taken, however he has learnt it isn’t as easy as that.
"We conduct thorough searches of the property and seize numerous items which provide vital evidence in uncovering the extent of the drug activity.

"Malvern was shown to be a regular visitor of the address and dealing crack cocaine to users – there’s only one place for this type of activity – and that’s prison.”
