Drug dealers jailed over 'long-running' operation

Three drug dealers who pushed Class A substances in South Worcestershire have been handed prison sentences.

At Worcester Crown Court they were found guilty of conspiracy to supply cocaine.

David Cruse, 35, of Evesham Road, Cleeve Prior, Evesham, was sentenced to 11 years and seven months.

John Dymock, 37, of Pinewood Drive, Cheltenham, was sentenced to six years and nine months, while Darrel Keen, who was already serving time for the same offence, was sentenced to a further two years.

Det Ch Insp Chris Percival of the West Mercia force said: "This sentencing is a tribute to the investigation team who worked tirelessly and relentlessly to pursue those responsible for a well-established, long-running, and lucrative drug-dealing enterprise."
