Prison for Addlestone drug dealer following proactive operation in North Surrey

13 Feb, 2018 16:48 News

An Addlestone man is the 18th person to be sent to prison for dealing class A drugs following a proactive operation across North Surrey in November 2017.

Daniel John, 27, of Green Lane, Addlestone, was sentenced to three years and four months in prison when he appeared at Guildford Crown Court yesterday (12 February).

Last month, 28-year-old Colleen Kennedy, also from Addlestone, was sentenced to two years in prison and given a five year Criminal Behaviour Order after being convicted for supplying class A drugs at Guildford Crown Court.

16 people are already behind bars for dealing class A drugs, including crack cocaine and heroin, bringing the total number of people sentenced so far to 18, and clocking up a total of over 53 years in prison between them.

The intelligence-led operation, carried out on 7 November 2017, was set up to disrupt drug dealing, and the associated criminality it brings, across “County Lines”, networks which are formed to sell illegal drugs across county borders. This resulted in 200 officers carrying out 19 search warrants in Addlestone, Cobham, Sunbury, Stanwell, Chertsey, Walton-on-Thames and Epsom, London and West Mercia.

North Surrey Detective Inspector Dee Fielding said: “The sentencing of Daniel John means that another drug dealer has been taken off our streets and now means that 18 people are in prison as a result of our operation. These sentences act as a reminder to dealers looking to sell drugs in Surrey that their criminality won’t be tolerated. Drug dealing can damage lives and tear communities apart and brings with it increased levels of crimes such as theft and anti-social behaviour.

“Vulnerable members of the community are also often exploited or coerced into selling drugs or providing a base from which to do so, known as cuckooing.”

DI Fielding added: “We want to express to the people of Surrey how they can play a part putting a stop to drug dealers and the networks they operate in. Working with us by reporting anything suspicious will enable us to better support and protect our communities. If you would rather report information anonymously, you can do so via Crimestoppers.”
