Man jailed for drug dealing - London Colney

13/12/2016

A man, who took to dealing drugs thinking it would solve financial problems has today, Tuesday, 13 December 2016, been jailed for 27 months.

David Jones, aged 27, began a street dealing operation peddling cocaine.

On 22 July this year, acting on information received, police arrested Jones, searched his property and found him to be in possession of 51.74 grams of cocaine with a purity of 65%. Along with the cocaine, police found a quantity of cutting agent Jones had acquired so that he could 'cut' the cocaine to make it go further and reap him more money. Drug paraphernalia was also discovered in his bedroom.

Jones, of Cotlandswick, London Colney, pleaded guilty when he appeared at St Albans Crown Court to possessing the Class A drug with intent to supply.

The court was told that although Jones was a cannabis user himself, he did not use cocaine.

Passing sentence on Jones, Judge Andrew Bright QC said he had made a full and frank admission, which suggested his remorse was genuine.
