Project Medusa: Liverpool man jailed for Class A drugs offences
Main article content
We have welcomed the sentencing of a 28 year-old Liverpool man for Class A drugs offences.
Merseyside police officers teamed up with Cheshire Police to conduct a cross border day of activity in April this year targeting those involved in drug crime.
The activity forms part of our ongoing attempt to tackle County Lines drug dealing and child criminal exploitation, dubbed Project Medusa.
Joseph Drury, of Griffin Close, Croxteth, appeared at Liverpool Crown Court court yesterday, Tuesday 24th August, where he was sentenced to four and a half years for being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and conspiracy to supply Class A drugs (cocaine and heroin).
Detective Inspector Gary Stratton said: “We are seeing County Lines offenders being brought to justice on an almost weekly basis at the moment.
“Project Medusa’s aim it to cut these lines dead and bring those controlling them to justice.
“We will continue to work with police forces and authorities across the country to make sure there is no safe place for such criminals to hide and get the vulnerable young people and adults they exploit, out of this lifestyle, through work with our partners.
“If you have any information about drug dealing in your area or are concerned about somebody who may be involved in County Lines, contact us, DM @MerPolCC or contact independent charity @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111 completely anonymously.”
