A prisoner was discovered with the drug Spice and a mobile phone in his Wayland jail cell, a court heard.

Karim Mouzoun, 27, was found with the banned items following a search by prison officers, Norwich Crown Court heard.

Martin Ivory, prosecuting, said they could be used as a form of currency in a custodial setting.

Mouzoun, who appeared via video from Norwich prison, admitted possessing Spice with intent to supply and having a prohibited mobile phone.

Judge Stephen Holt imposed an eight month sentence which Mouzoun will serve after his present sentence ends.

The judge said having these items in prison was “serious” but was keeping his sentence to a minimum after hearing that Mouzoun was now a “model” prisoner and improving his skills.

Shannon Revel, for Mouzoun, said: “He has been taking his education more seriously.”
