A Tamworth man has been jailed after he was caught carrying a rock in a sock as an improvised weapon as well as a serrated blade on separate occasions.
Dale MacCall, 34, of Chaucer Close, was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment at Stafford Crown Court yesterday (June 17).
MacCall pleaded guilty to possessing a serrated blade on March 6 in Spinning School Lane, Tamworth. He also pleaded guilty to carrying a rock in a sock at Cannock Railway Station on February 8.

He was remanded in custody following the March 6 offence.
Sergeant Gary Harborow, of Tamworth Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We will not tolerate the carrying of offensive weapons or bladed articles on our streets.
“There is no excuse for carrying weapons such as these, which are clearly used to either intimidate, threaten or cause violence.”
