Main article content
A man who sold drugs on the streets of Leamington has been jailed for two years.
Jamie Considine, 30, was stopped by plain clothed officers on 10 July when they saw him talking to two known drug users in Althorpe Street.
They detained him a few minutes later in Crown Terrace before carrying out a search that led to the seizure of two mobile phones.
Suspecting he was in possession of drugs the officers took him back to Leamington Police Station to carry out a more thorough search. Here they found a package containing heroin and crack cocaine valued at £790.
Considine, of Beauchamp Road, Kenilworth was jailed at Warwick Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday 6 September) after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine.
Detective Constable Mottram from Warwickshire Police Serious and Organised Crime Team said: “I welcome the sentence handed down to Considine, which reflects the severity of his offending and the damage illegal drugs cause to our communities.
“We carry out regular plain clothed patrols in Leamington and one of these helped us to identify Considine’s illegal activities. I hope his conviction sends out a clear message that Warwickshire police will not tolerate the actions of those who seek to profit at the expense of some of the most vulnerable members of our community.”
