Two men sentenced for drug possession totalling £29,970

October 24, 2014, 4:12 pm

Two men have been sentenced today (24th October 2014) to over nine years at Carlisle Crown Court for possession with intent to supply £29,970 worth of drugs.

On 14th August 2014, Dean Gee, aged 23, from Kinder Grove, Romiley, Stockport, and Liam Wilson, aged 21 from Linney Square, Wigan, were arrested in Workington following a stop check and search of their car. Police officers found cocaine, mephedrone, MDMA (ecstasy) tablets and powder, which totalled a street value of £29,970, all hidden in the car.

They both pleaded guilty on 1st September 2014 to four offences of possession of drugs with intent to supply. Wilson was sentenced to five years and four months and Gee received a sentence of four years.

Sergeant Duncan Brooker, who led the investigation, said: “Wilson and Gee were arrested as a result of pro-active policing. Police officers were suspicious of their behaviour, stopped their car in Workington and found a substantial amount of drugs.

“The actions of those officers, PC Drysdale and PC Royle from the Operational Support Unit, prevented these drugs from hitting the streets of Cumbria and in turn deprived Gee and Wilson of their liberty.

“The supply and use of illegal drugs has an impact on certain communities within Cumbria and we will not allow this to go un-challenged. The sentence today hopefully sends a strong message that Cumbria Police are dedicated in targeting those responsible for the distribution and sale of drugs in Cumbria.”
