Rory Newton, 26, of Victoria Road, Horley, also pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis and drug driving when he appeared at Guildford Crown Court yesterday (13 May). As well as the prison sentence, he was also disqualified from driving, and an order was made to destroy the drugs, phones and paraphernalia which were found after Newton was arrested.

Newton was spotted by officers on the evening of 13 September 2018 getting out of a blue mini in Consort Way. He refused to provide his details and officers decided to search his car. He was arrested on suspicion of possession of cannabis after a green herbal substance was found in the vehicle.

Newton was drug wiped at the roadside, which showed he had taken cannabis, and he was arrested for drug driving.

He was further arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cocaine after he was found to be in possession of two bags of white powder, a burner phone and drugs paraphernalia. Examination of the phone uncovered messages which related to dealing drugs.

PC Steve Ellis, who led the investigation, said:

“Searches of Newton, his car and his address revealed clear evidence that he was involved in the supply of class A

“The fact that he is now behind bars means that he is no longer dealing drugs on our streets, and we hope that the sentence given to him will deter anyone involved in drug dealing from targeting our local communities.”

PC Ellis continued: “Information from members of the public can be really valuable in tackling drug dealing in our county. If you suspect someone is dealing drugs, or involved in the supply of drugs, we want to hear from you.”

Teenage boy robbed at knifepoint on train from Gatwick to Brighton

Can you help find these two men?

Detectives investigating a knife-point robbery on a train East Sussex would like to identify them in connection.  

On 18 November at around 11pm, the victim, a 17-year-old young man, was travelling on a train from Gatwick Airport to Preston Park.   

He was approached by two men who tried to engage him in conversation for a short time. One of the men was noticeably intoxicated.  

They became increasingly more threatening and reached into the victim’s jeans as the train was approaching Burgess Hill, trying to take his wallet.   The victim put his hand on his pocket to try and stop them, and one of the men pulled up his top and told him he had a knife.  

The victim handed over his wallet, and the man then took out the knife and told him to hand over his phone too.  

The victim was threatened further as he left the train.  

It’s believe the two men boarded the train at East Croydon and left at Preston Park.  

Detectives believe the men in the CCTV images may have information which could help their investigation.
