A man has been jailed for seven years for his role in a county lines drug operation.
Andrew Wortley, of Main Street, Stapenhill, Burton-upon-Trent, was found guilty of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and possession of criminal property.
Following an intelligence-led vehicle stop, officers carried out a search of Wortley’s home, seizing crack cocaine valued at more than £1,000, scales, cash, a mobile and a tick list.
The 45-year-old has now been sentenced to seven years in prison at Stafford Crown Court on Friday (June 19) – less than a month after his arrest on May 21.
Detective Sergeant Jonathan Bradbury, from the Staffordshire Police’s Southern Disruption team, said: “This is a great result and we’re very pleased that the courts have imposed this kind of sentence.
“We want this to stand as a warning to anyone involved in county lines drugs operation that we will find you and will look to hand significant jail terms out.”
