Man jailed for possessing drugs with intent to supply

First published in News by

A MAN has been jailed for two and a half years for possessing thousands of pounds worth of drugs with intent to supply them.

Adam Hyman, from Middle Mead, Rochford, was sentenced to two and half years for possessing cannabis and cocaine.

Police found the stash of 657grams of cannabis and 23 grams of cocaine when officers raided a house on London Road, Westcliff, on February 15 last year.

They also found scales and drugs paraphernalia.

The drugs were sent to a forensic laboratory to be tested which confirmed Hyman was in possession class B drug cannabis with a value of between £3,600 to £6,500 and class A drug with a value between £920 and £2,300.

Hyman was sentenced on Monday, June 23, at Basildon Crown Court for possession with intent to supply.

Two others were acquitted.

Dc Andy Copley from Southend CID said: "I am pleased with the outcome of this lengthy investigation. Hyman will now have time whilst he is in prison to think about the lives he has affected by dealing drugs to vulnerable people.”

Well as there are a lot of people making money out of it and a lot of people shortening their lives as a result, or being subjected to abuse, the potential is there.

Look at some of the s**thole places in the world that are mired in drug trafficking and the state of their infrastructure and the lives of their people. Some of those South American countries have people living in abject poverty.

I despise illegal drugs but I do think we're going about this the wrong way. Someone else will take his place to make his few grand until they get locked up.

More attention and proper sentencing for the users would stem the desire to peddle illegal drugs. I walk around Southend and some people stink of cannabis.

How can you sentence users? That would be around 3 million people a year, the uk prison population is only around 10,000. You will never stop users with law.

Just because a lot of people are committing crime, I don't believe we should turn a blind eye.

I do t think people realise how strong cannabis is these days.. The THC is so much stronger. In 20 years time the teenage taking stuff now will all be suffering with depression etc as already proven with cannabis. This will have a knock on effect to the NHS. Finally heroin addicts all admitted they start on the softer drugs before going onto the hard stuff. Look at the Geldoffs, really really sad but true!
