Man jailed after being caught with 30K cocaine

Published

on

A drug dealer caught with nearly £30,000-worth of cocaine has been jailed yesterday, Tuesday 14 January 2014.

Stephen Campbell, born 10/9/89, of Stillwater Drive, Clayton, had earlier pleaded guilty at Manchester Crown Court to possession of class A drugs, with intent to supply.

He was today jailed for four years, eight months.

On 19 July 2013 officers from GMP’s Operation Challenger Unit executed a warrant at
Campbell’s flat under the powers of a Section 23 Misuse of Drugs Act warrant.

In the master bedroom officers found a computer tower base unit. When it was dismantled it was found to contain a number of small plastic tubs that contained a white powder.

The tower was seized and found to contain a red blanket which contained 349 wraps in various sizes of a white solid.

Officers also found a large compressed cylinder-shaped lump of white rock, two large bags of a white powder suspected to be a mixing agent along with a set of electronic scales and unused plastic snap bags.

Since the raid extensive enquiries were made to locate and arrest Campbell and on 13 November 2013 he was arrested in Blackpool.

Detective Constable James Coles said: “When we launched Operation Challenger last year we said that we would use every weapon in our armoury to pursue organised criminals.

“Whatever Campbell claims about being forced against his will to hold these drugs for others, the fact remains he was part of a bigger network intent on profiting from drug addiction.

“I hope this sentence sends out a clear message that drug dealers have no place on the streets of Greater Manchester.”
