Here is our monthly look back at some of the criminals jailed in Norfolk courts in June.
• A father and daughter were jailed for almost five years for a 'prolonged and cruel campaign of harassment' which hurt those targeted and left 'a cloud of suspicion' hanging over a community. For almost two years a number of people living in Melton Constable and Briston were sent a barrage of threatening messages as part of a campaign of harassment carried out by the pair. Sarah Clitheroe, 24, of Larwood Way, Horsford, was jailed for three years after she admitted one count of stalking and two of attempting to pervert the course of justice which involved her providing false documents to the court, including medical letters. Edward Clitheroe, 71, also of Larwood Way, was jailed for 22 months after he admitted stalking.• A man was caught with £50,000 of cocaine at his house - nine days after narrowly avoiding jail for heroin possession, a court heard. Jonathan Brown, of Highfield in King's Lynn, was given an 18-month suspended sentence on February 3 for possession of heroin with intent to supply.
But last month a Norwich Crown Court sentencing hearing heard that on February 12 police found over a kilogram of cocaine wraps at his home. Brown, 48, was sentenced to three years in jail for possession of cocaine with intent to supply - a charge he admitted. Recorded John Gallagher also activated the previous suspended sentence for the heroin offence, taking the total jail sentence to four-and-a-half years.
• A judge jailed a Lowestoft detective for 28 days for intending to pervert the course of justice.
David Phelps, a detective with Suffolk Constabulary based in Lowestoft, had denied intending to pervert the course of justice, specifically trying to coach or put words in the mouth of a man arrested in connection with a drugs matter.

• Solomon Oghene, 31, from London, was jailed for 10 years after he admitted possession of a firearm, being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and possession of a prohibited weapon.Armed police officers stormed a Great Yarmouth flat after a terrified man called 999 and told police Oghene was at his flat in Marine Parade 'off his head' smoking crack cocaine and had a machine gun. • Three men were jailed after a couple were held at knife point inside their own home, near Norwich, by an armed gang.
