Crawley drug dealer jailed
Dealer gets four and half years in prison.
A man has been jailed for four and a half year for drug dealing and possession of knives and a CS canister in Crawley.
Michael Murray, 26, of no fixed address, had pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine, money laundering, possession of a CS canister and one count of possession of a bladed article at an earlier hearing on 26 March.
He was sentenced at Hove Crown Court on Friday (18 May).
The court heard that police were called to a hotel in Goffs Park Road, Crawley on 27 February this year to a report of an aggressive guest who was refusing to leave.
When the officers went into his hotel room they found Murray with drugs and a subsequent search of the room found an envelope containing several hundred wraps of cocaine with a street value of approximately £9,000, a quantity of cannabis, nearly £10,000 cash, drug dealing paraphernalia and a canister of CS gas.
Murray was arrested and later charged.
Detective Constable Melanie Fox said: “Murray was found with a substantial quantity of drugs, cash and weapons. We are committed to disrupting the supply of drugs in Crawley. This sentence shows that anyone convicted of dealing drugs in Sussex can expect a jail term.”
