Dealer who sold heroin and crack in Leamington jailed for two years

Leamington Editorial 8th Sep, 2023   0

A DRUG dealer who sold heroin and crack cocaine on the streets of Leamington has been jailed for two years.

Jamie Considine, 30, was stopped by plain clothed officers on July 10 when they saw him talking to two known drug users in Althorpe Street.

They detained him a few minutes later in Crown Terrace before carrying out a search that led to the seizure of two mobile phones.

When he was searched at Leamington Police Station, the officers found a package containing heroin and crack cocaine worth £790.




Considine, of Beauchamp Road in Kenilworth, was jailed at Warwick Crown Court after pleading guilty to possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply.

Det Cons Mottram from Warwickshire Police Serious and Organised Crime Team said: “I welcome the sentence handed down to Considine, which reflects the severity of his offending and the damage illegal drugs cause to our communities.


“We carry out regular plain clothed patrols in Leamington and one of these helped us to identify Considine’s illegal activities. I hope his conviction sends out a clear message that Warwickshire police will not tolerate the actions of those who seek to profit at the expense of some of the most vulnerable members of our community.”
