Two men who ran a county line drug dealing network between Worcester and the West Midlands have been handed sentences of a total of six years and eleven months.

Joshua Roberts, 20, of Dover Close in Birmingham, was sentenced to three years and two months and Edwyn Onyeme-Cambell, 21, of Willington Road in Sheffield was given three years and nine months.

They were both sentenced at Worcester Crown Court on Wednesday 24 January after they pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A heroin, crack and cocaine and possession of an offensive weapon.

On Thursday 30 November, officers stopped Onyeme-Cambell and Roberts inside Coral betting shop on Widemarsh Street in Hereford. They were found to be in possession of three large knives, a large quantity of class A drugs, two burner phones and cash.

Detective Sergeant Jim Moore: “Drugs are a constant menace to our society; they motivate offending and destroy lives.

“I welcome these sentences as a deterrent to those who think they can exploit vulnerable people and make Hereford a destination for their offending.

“Anyone found supplying controlled drugs in the county will be robustly dealt with, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the public who came to our assistance and encourage anyone with information about drug supply to come forward. You can report online under the Tell Us About section at West Mercia Police or by calling 101.”
