Leamington Editorial 25th Sep, 2023   0

A STRATFORD drug dealer caught with a knuckleduster has been jailed for more than two years.

Peter Henry, who travelled to the town from Warwick, was first arrested in March when officers from the Stratford Safer Neighbourhood Team were carrying out high-visibility patrols in Alcester Road.

They detained Henry before searching him and seizing cocaine, heroin, cannabis and a knuckleduster.

The following month he was arrested again by officers from Proactive CID conducting plain clothed patrols targeting drug dealing in the town.




After spotting a suspected drug deal at the recreation ground, Henry was detained and they seized heroin, crack cocaine and cannabis.

Henry was charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply heroin, to counts of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, two counts of possession of cannabis and one count of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.


The 35-year-old, of Peregrine Way, Warwick, was jailed for two years and eight months at Warwick Crown Court on Friday (September 22) after admitting those charges at a previous hearing.

Detective Constable G Dubad from Warwickshire Police Proactive CID said: “The sale of drugs has the knock-on effect of causing crime and antisocial behaviour in our communities. The people who look to profit from this trade can expect to be arrested and jailed.”
