Men jailed for dealing drugs in Crewe Date published: 23rd August 2018 10.11am

Five people have been sentenced for their part in a drugs gang supplying class A drugs in Crewe.

The men pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of class A drugs at Chester Crown Court last Friday (17 August).

The gang were using two addresses on West Street, Crewe, to supply drugs from. When the properties were raided by police in February they found £2000 of heroin and crack cocaine and £1800 in cash.

Nathan Edwards, 21, of Lonsdale Road, Formby, who brought the drugs from Liverpool into Crewe and who also admitted possessing criminal property, was jailed for three years and seven months.

Jonathan Hanley, 39, of West Street, Crewe, who also admitted allowing his property to be used for supplying drugs, was jailed for seven months.

Street dealer Christopher Lightfoot, 43, of Rolls Avenue, Crewe, was jailed for two years and one month.

Another street dealer Ciaron Manley, 39, of Goudlen Street, Crewe, was jailed for two years and four months.

A 17-year-old from Liverpool, who was also a street dealer, also admitted possession of a bladed article and was given a 12 month youth rehabilitation order.

PC Victoria Greenhoff said: “We are pleased that the sentences handed down reflect the seriousness of their offending. The supply of class A drugs on our streets causes misery to residents and those addicted to them and fuels crime.

“With help from the community we can continue to crack down on those selling drugs and make Crewe a safer place to live.”
