Three men have been convicted of drug trafficking after heroin and crack cocaine were found in disposable coffee cups.
Stephen Lawson, 50, Leon Stanford, 51, and Kerry Grzegorz, 45, were all convicted of possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply. The trio were arrested on June 27, 2020 and found in their possession with over a hundred packs of drugs and nearly £750 in cash.
Lawson and Stanford were sentenced to 43 months and 33 months in prison, respectively, while Grzegorz was given a 22-month suspended sentence.
The judge commented that Lawson played a significant role in drug trafficking operations in Bognor and described Stanford as also “very active.”
Stanford and Grzegorz were also arrested on July 2, 2020, when police discovered the couple with packages of drugs and cash hidden in disposable coffee cups.
Sergeant Chris Bryant, of Sussex Police’s Tactical Enforcement Unit, said: “Working with colleagues and based on information and intelligence provided by vigilant members of the public, together we have been able to secure convictions against some of the region’s high street dealers and stop them from getting into able to deliver medicines that are causing so much harm in our community.
“Our primary objective in this operation was to prevent, detect and disrupt crime in the Bognor Regis area.”
