A drug dealer has been sentenced after police found large quantities of cocaine at his home in York.
Officers in the city acted on information provided by members of the public. In 2020 they conducted three separate warrants at the same address on Doherty Walk. Large amounts of cocaine and cannabis were located during these warrants.
Connor Harrison, 24, of York was arrested and charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine and cannabis. He pleaded guilty at York Crown Court where he was sentenced during a separate hearing to four years in prison.
PC Nicola Manning from the Neighbourhood Policing Team in Acomb said: “This is a positive result for the city of York as it has taken another drug dealer from the streets.
“It’s important that if there is an issue that is causing you concern you report it to the police and we will endeavour to act on the information provided.
“If you have any concerns or information about drugs in your community, contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
