Three people have been sentenced for drugs offences following an investigation by police officers after receiving reports from the public of drug dealing from an address in Kidderminster.

Three pleaded guilty at Hereford Crown Court on Friday (26 April) and were sentenced to the following:

Callum Clee, 21, of Willow Road, Dudley was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment for being concerned in the supply of class A drugs heroin and crack cocaine.

Katherine Ray, 42, of Jubilee Drive, Kidderminster  was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment for being concerned in the supply of class A drugs heroin and crack cocaine.

Muhammed Shabaz Sheikh, 23, of New Birmingham Road, Dudley, was sentenced to four years imprisonment for being concerned in the supply of class A drugs heroin and crack cocaine.

As part of their investigation, officers discovered a large amount of individually wrapped heroin and crack cocaine bags on Clee.

At the time of the investigation, Ray was allowing the drugs to be sold from her premises and also selling drugs. whilst, further enquiries linked Sheikh to the running of a drug line in the area.

Speaking following the sentencing, DC Marc Waring 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.

"I want to make it clear that dealing drugs and also allowing your home to be used for drugs to be sold by a person, or group of people from outside of the area is not acceptable.

"If you are asked to allow your premises to be the venue for such activities please contact us immediately so that we can help."

He continued:  "Our officers, in particular our local Safer Neighbourhood Team worked very closely with investigating officers throughout to ensure those offenders were brought to justice."
