We have today, Tuesday 26th May, welcomed the sentencing of a 43 year-old Liverpool man for drugs offences.
On 4th November 2019 a warrant was executed at a house in Petherick Road in Croxteth. During a search of the property and a further search of a van, a large quantity of Class A and B drugs, including cocaine, amphetamine and cannabis together with a large quantity of cash was recovered.
Carl Fairfield, of Petherick Road, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs and possession of criminal property when he appeared at Liverpool Crown Court.
He was jailed for five years and seven months.
Detective Inspector Simon Hurst said: “Criminals involved in the supply and distribution of controlled drugs don’t care about the impact their illicit trade has on decent members of the public, all they care about is the money they can make.
“Our message to those involved in drug supply on Merseyside is that you cannot escape justice and we will relentlessly pursue those profiting from serious organised crime.
“We will work with our communities to improve the quality of life for decent, law-abiding people and I would urge people to keep helping us do that by reporting any drug dealing to the police either by DM@MerPolCC or call the Crimestoppers line anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
