Four sentenced for Worcester drugs offences

Four people have been sentenced for drugs offences following an investigation in Worcester.

Officers were carrying out enquires during an investigation into a burglary at a property in Drake Avenue in March 2018. As part of their investigation, they discovered a large amount of cannabis, cash and mobile phones as well as scales and deal bags at the property.

Four people were subsequently charged with drugs offences. They pleaded guilty at Worcester Crown Court on Friday (8 March) and were sentenced to the following:

  • Claire Williams, 42, of Drake Avenue, Worcester was sentenced to nine months imprisonment suspended for 18 months for possession with intent to supply class B cannabis
  • David Warman, 20, of Drake Avenue, Worcester received an 18 month community order and 150 hours unpaid work for being concerned in the supply of class B cannabis
  • Megan Minnis, 19, of Drake Avenue, Worcester received a 12 month community order and 100 hours unpaid work for being concerned in the supply of class B cannabis
  • A 17-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons received a nine month community order, a 40 day activity requirement, and was ordered to pay a victim surcharge for being concerned in the supply of class B cannabis

Speaking following the sentencing, PC Liam Mather said: "We will always take reports of drug dealing seriously and do everything we can to ensure our communities are kept safe and protected from harm.

"This particular case is an example of a potential outcome that can result from dealing controlled drugs in the community.

"Our officers from the Dines Green Safer Neighbourhood Team worked very closely with investigating officers throughout to ensure those offenders were brought to justice."
