A man who admitted to the supply of cocaine and heroin in Southampton has been jailed for 45 months after appearing at Southampton Crown Court today, Tuesday, 3 November.
Dilan Daley, 28, of Dynevor Road, Hackney, pleaded guilty to two counts of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.
Daley was arrested on Thursday, 24 September after officers from Hampshire Constabulary and the Metropolitan Police carried out county lines warrant at his address, where he was found in possession of a quantity of heroin and crack cocaine.
The court heard that Daley held a drugs line that he used to advertise the sale of drugs to residents in Southampton and would travel from London to Southampton to supply them.
This investigation formed part of Operation Monument, Hampshire Constabulary’s response to tackling county lines drug dealing, and Operation Orochi, led by the Metropolitan Police into county lines dealing.
