County Lines drug dealer Zack Warner has been jailed for a total of five years and six months for his part in supplying crack cocaine and heroin from London into Salisbury.
Between July 24 and August 23 2017, Warner, 24, of Connell Crescent, London, travelled down to Salisbury on seven separate occasions, often for days at a time and was frequently located by police in the home addresses of vulnerable Class A drug addicts, more commonly known as cuckooing.
On one occasion, he was detained by police and fought violently to escape, assaulting an officer in the process.
He was charged and bailed, while the complex investigation into his role in the drug supply chain continued, despite no drugs ever being located.
At an earlier date, he pleaded guilty to resisting/obstructing an officer and was fined £200 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £30.
He also pleaded guilty to two counts of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs (heroin and crack cocaine) and was sentenced to four years and six months imprisonment at Salisbury Crown Court on March 21. Additionally, the judge activated one year of a previous suspended prison sentence imposed on an earlier date at Reading Crown Court for Class A drug supply. This will run consecutively, making a total of five-and-a-half years imprisonment.
During the sentencing, the Judge said Warner had travelled to Salisbury simply to make money from the misery of others and described how he played a significant role in a sophisticated and security conscious operation, taking advantage of vulnerable people.
Det Con David Hambly, of the Dedicated Crime Team, added: “I am satisfied with the sentence handed down to Warner. County Lines drug supply is a chain of exploitation from beginning to end and I hope that it sends a message that where we find this type of criminality we will do everything in our power to bring those responsible to justice, even where we do not actually seize any drugs.
"If you have information or concerns regarding county lines drug supply I would urge you to call 101 and report it, all information is treated with the utmost discretion”.
