A heroin dealer was caught in Portslade with a stash worth about £5,000 after someone tipped off police.
Jason Goodman, 43, was found sat in a Skoda Fabia car, in Bush Farm Drive, where he had been reported to be using drugs.
He has since appeared at Brighton Magistrates’ Court where he admitted having heroin with intent to supply.
The magistrates bailed to him to appear before a crown court judge for sentence.
Sussex Police said that when officers searched Goodman’s car they found his stash of heroin.
PC Georgina Edge, who responded to the call-out with her colleague PC Nicholas Simmons, praised the person who alerted police.
She said: “Thanks to a concerned member of the public, who saw Goodman smoking heroin in his car, we were able to intervene.
“It allowed us to take a large amount of heroin out of circulation and also prevent the offender from drug driving.”
