Three men dealing crack cocaine and heroin in Leamington have been jailed for more than eight years after detectives spotted suspicious behaviour in the town.
In March 2021 detectives were on a patrol in Leamington when they saw Alexander Finch (now 47) behaving suspiciously.

He was detained and found to be carrying both heroin and crack cocaine.
Shortly after, they raided his Dale Street flat.
Inside, they found Keenan Walker (now 24, of Westminster Road in Coventry) and Callum Rogers (now 21, of Murray Lodge in Coventry)– together with yet more cocaine and heroin in various states of preparation.
All were arrested and charged with possessing heroin and crack with intent to supply.
And on Thursday, 2 November, at Warwick Crown Court, Finch was sentenced to 24 months in prison, Walker to 36 months and Rogers to 40 months.
Detective Constable Pitt said: “These substances destroy lives and place a huge burden on users, families, communities, and public services.
“All three defendants might now want to use this time to find better things to do with their lives.
“I hope this serves as a warning. Do this in our town and we’re going to lock you up.”
