8:00am Friday 6th September 2013 in News
A drug dealer has been jailed for more than five years.
James Heyes, of Hollinshead Street, Chorley, pleaded guilty to supplying heroin, possession of heroin with intent to supply and possession of crack cocaine at Preston Crown Court.
The 54-year-old was handed the five year, seven months and six day sentence for supplying heroin and possession with intent to supply heroin. He was given a further one year in jail for possessing crack cocaine, which is to run concurrent.
Heyes was arrested on February 14 following a police operation into the supply of heroin. When he was arrested he was found in possession of crack cocaine and heroin.
Det Con Carl Tobin said he hoped the length of sentence would act as a deterrent for those considering becoming involved in the supply of drugs.
He said: “I am pleased with the sentence given and I hope it acts as a deterrent to others. It should send a clear message to the community of Chorley that we refuse to tolerate those that choose to break the law by selling drugs on the streets.
“People can be confident that we will take positive active in relation to all information we receive about drug dealing within Lancashire.”
