Drug dealer caught in Woking faces three years behind bars
Main article content
A drug dealer from London is facing three years behind bars after he was arrested in Woking earlier this year.
Chris Jackson, 31, from Campbell Avenue, Westfield, London, was sentenced to three years in prison for possession with intent to supply at Guildford Crown Court on August 26.
Jackson was caught as part of an ongoing County Lines investigation. ANPR results revealed a Mercedes was travelling in and out of the county from London. The vehicle was stopped on June 23 in a housing estate in Woking and the driver, Jackson, was told to get out. It was discovered that he was concealing a knife within his trousers.
Jackson and his female passenger were arrested for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs. CCTV evidence later showed Jackson topping up the line phone used for drug dealing.
Investigating officer PC Luke Lightburn said: “Drugs are a scourge on our local communities and simply will not be tolerated. These sentences send a strong message that we will always do everything we can to ensure that those involved are arrested, charged and put before the courts.”
