TWO men who ran a county line drug dealing network between Worcester and the West Midlands have been jailed for nearly seven years between them.
Joshua Roberts, 20, of Dover Close in Birmingham, was sentenced to three years and two months.
Edwin Onyme-Campbell, 21, of Willington Road in Sheffield was given three years and nine months.
The duo were sentenced at Worcester Crown Court on Wednesday (January 24).
They pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A heroin, crack and cocaine and possession of an offensive weapon.
On Thursday, November 30, police stopped the men inside Coral betting shop on Widemarsh Street in Hereford.
They were found to have three large knives, a large quantity of class-A drugs, two burner phones and cash.
Det Sgt Jim Moore said: “Drugs are a constant menace to our society; they motivate offending and destroy lives.
“I welcome these sentences as a deterrent to those who think they can exploit vulnerable people and make Hereford a destination for their offending.
“Anyone found supplying controlled drugs in the county will be robustly dealt with.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the public who came to our assistance.
“I’d encourage anyone with information about drug supply to come forward.”
