A drug dealer has been jailed for more than two years after he admitted selling crack cocaine, cannabis and heroin in Tamworth.
Rhys Sandbrook, 22, from Tamworth, was spotted by proactive officers in Wilnecote in October 2020. He ran away from officers when we tried to stop him.
We found a discarded pot of heroin and crack cocaine at the scene.
Then, in June 2021, we spotted Sandbrook again and stopped him for a search.
After looking through his mobile phone, it soon became clear that Sandbrook was involved in supplying class A and B drugs in the local area.
He was questioned about the findings in custody and later admitted to the offences in court.
He was sentenced to 28 months in jail at Stafford Crown Court on Thursday (24 August) for being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, cannabis and heroin.
Detective Sergeant Jonathan Bradbury, who dealt with the case, said: “I’m happy we’ve been able to jail another dealer who was intent on distributing harmful drugs within our communities.
“Officers across the force are committed to proactively targeting drug supply and will continue to act on intelligence leads and reports from the public to bring these people to justice.
“We will continue to take proactive action against those involved in supplying drugs in Staffordshire.”
The activity follows our ongoing commitment to tackling serious and organised crime and protecting those who are at risk of exploitation through criminals – called Operation Target.
Work is continuing to proactively target the groups responsible for these crimes – including county lines, drug distribution, illegal firearms and sexual exploitation.
