A drug dealer responsible for supplying Class A drugs in Chorley has been jailed.
On March 25, of this year, officers from the South Division target team detained and searched a male on Waldgrave Road, Liverpool.
Robert Lloyd, 26, (pictured) was found in possession of a quantity of heroin and crack cocaine.
A search was carried out of Lloyd’s home address in Waldgrave Road, Liverpool, where further amounts of crack cocaine, heroin and cocaine were seized, along with just over £3,000 in cash, cannabis and drug paraphernalia. The total street value of crack cocaine and heroin seized exceeded £22,000.
Further investigation found that Lloyd was responsible for the supply of drugs within Chorley.
On Friday (July 3rd), Lloyd appeared at Preston Crown Court and pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, possession with intent to supply heroin, possession with intent to supply cocaine and possession with intent to supply cannabis.
He was sentenced to five and a half years in prison and a forfeiture order was made for the drugs and cash.
PC Edward Carroll, of Lancashire Constabulary’s South Division Target Team, said: “This is an excellent result for the community of Chorley and once again shows that the supply of controlled substances into the area by criminals from neighbouring counties will not be tolerated by the public or the police.
“We will continue to proactively target those committing organised crime in our area and will act on any information given to the police.”
