A prolific drug dealer is facing the next three and a half years behind bars after he was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on Friday (10 November).
Craig Gabriel (DOB: 17.09.91) from Horley pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, Cocaine.
Gabriel was first stopped and searched by officers on 4 May 2020 on Reigate High Street when he was arrested after a mobile phone was found hidden in his car and his passenger had attempted to hide £700 in cash in a local park. Work on the phone uncovered cocaine supply messages sent between March and May 2020.
Following this, earlier this year, Gabriel was investigated once again for Cannabis supply following a search warrant that was carried out at his workplace in Smallfield. Cannabis oil was found along with drug supply messages on phones that were seized.
