At York Crown Court today (Tuesday 20 June 2023), a group of men from Scarborough were sent to prison for a total of 11 and a half years for Class A drug dealing offences.
Alfie Damien Bailey, 22, of Maple Drive, TJ Lewis Glendinning, 23, Hatterboard Drive, and Joshua David Greaves, 26, of Westbourne Grove, were due to stand trial in May.
However, they changed their pleas to guilty for being concerned in the supply of heroin and crack cocaine in the town between August and November 2022.
A fourth defendant, Brandon Hutchinson, 20, of Aberdeen Walk, had previously admitted to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine.
Bailey and Glendinning were each imprisoned for four years, Greaves for three and a half years, and Hutchinson received a 20-months suspended sentence.
Bailey was previously convicted of conspiracy to supply heroin and crack cocaine and was released on licence in April 2022.
During an Operation Expedite team stop of an individual in August 2022, a mobile phone number was identified that could be shown to be contacting local drug users via phone call rather than text.
Enquires identified that Bailey had purchased the number while in company of Glendinning in a local shop.
Bailey and Glendinning were inseparable at the time and, after been encountered together by the police, the line was dropped.
Hutchinson was arrested after drug users were seen gathering close to the home address of Greaves and Glendinning.
He was found in possession of a number of wraps of crack cocaine. Phone work showed they were all in contact with each other and Greaves was forensically linked to the wraps.
Mobile phone examinations provided evidence of the gang offering heroin and crack cocaine for sale under the the ‘Stacey’ line, plus arrangements for people to meet with Greaves.
Bank records showed the deposit of cash into the bank account of Bailey and subsequent transfer of cash from Bailey to Glendinning.
ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) and mobile phone analysis showed Bailey and Glendinning make a quick turnaround trip to Scunthorpe along with the deal phone at the time.
This was once again a drug dealing operation orchestrated by Bailey, this time with the assistance of Glendinning, Greaves and Hutchinson.
Detective Constable Darrel Temple, of the Operation Expedite team based in Scarborough, said:
“Class A drug dealers like Bailey, Glendinning, Greaves and Hutchinson cause untold misery in the Scarborough area. It’s therefore satisfying they’ve been imprisoned for a significant amount of time.
“They are prolific offenders, and it was only a matter of time before they found themselves behind bars again.
“Bailey especially had an opportunity to reform his life during past couple of years while serving time in prison for similar offences.
“Instead, he chose to go straight back into drug dealing on his release from prison. Hopefully this time he will change his ways along with the others.
“The Operation Expedite team is relentless in the pursuit of drug-dealers and drug-related crime in the Scarborough area and beyond.
“Together with our community partners, we will not tolerate such criminal activity in our area.”
