Man jailed for dealing drugs in Widnes Date published: 24th November 2017 10.32am

A man has been jailed for 50 months for supplying Class A drugs in Widnes.

Phillip Harrison, 32, of Hollybank Grange, Halewood, pleaded guilty at Liverpool Crown Court on 19 November to possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, heroin and cocaine, and acquiring criminal property.  He was sentenced on 21 November.

Harrison was arrested after officers carried out a successful drugs warrant at his address in October.  The warrant was executed following information that was passed on by members of the public.

Police found 42 wraps of cocaine and 26 wraps of heroin and more than £9,000 in cash inside his home and car.

The items were seized and taken away for forensic examination. And Harrison was subsequently charged with the offences.

Detective Constable Deborah Carter said: “This is a great result and shows the value of information that is passed on by members of the public. In this case, we acted on the intelligence about Harrison dealing drugs from his car in the Widnes area, and this has helped to secure a conviction at court and taken these drugs off the streets.

“I would encourage anyone with any information about illegal drugs in their area to contact Cheshire Police on 101.  If you do not want to speak to the police directly information can also be passed on anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.”
