County Lines Dr*g Syndicate Dismantled, Six Offenders Sentenced!
Following the breakdown of a county-wide narcotics network, six persons have received sentences. Five police warrants were executed simultaneously at homes in Bath and Keynsham, both in Somerset, last year.
Officers made arrests and seized dr*gs with an estimated street worth of more than £38,000, including crack c0caine and her0in. Along with the huge knives, Avon and Somerset Police also found about £15,000 in cash.
Six people have now received sentences as a result of the inquiry; the seventh defendant was incarcerated at a hearing on Tuesday, September 19. Tuesday at Bristol Crown Court, Courtney Tanner-Mulholland, 18, of Keynsham, received her punishment.
After pleading guilty to accusations of being involved in the supply of her0in and crack c0caine, two counts of being in possession of the illicit property, and one count of reckless driving, he was given a five-year term.
After pleading guilty to allegations of being involved in the supply of her0in and crack c0caine, five further people have also received sentences in recent months.
Jamaal Newman, 19, of Keynsham’s Hercules Way, was given a term of 2.5 years in a juvenile correctional facility. 20-year-old Lubabalo Hale, who has no established residence, was given a three-year prison term.
Oliver Lynes, 20, of Beckford Gardens in Bathwick, was given a two-year prison term with a two-year suspension. A curfew, 180 hours of unpaid work, and a 30-day rehabilitation activity order were also added to his list of orders.

A 17-year-old youngster who cannot be identified due to legal restrictions was given a two-year detention order in a facility for young offenders.
While the 17-year-old admitted two counts of the same offence, Newman, Hale, and Lynes had also admitted to being in possession of the criminal property.
“These are predominantly young people with their lives ahead of them, who’ve been influenced by the false and harmful ‘kudos’ of dealing class A drugs for cash,” stated the investigating officer, PC James Abbott from the County Lines Dr*gs squad.
