Dealer jailed after £20k of class A and B drugs seized

A prolific drug dealer who had more than £20,000 of Class A and B drugs seized from him has been sentenced to more that three years behind bars.

Dean Gannon, 49, of Pelican Place in Eynsham, pleaded guilty to three counts of drug offences in February.

On July 14 last year, Thames Valley Police officers executed a misuse of drugs warrant at Gannon’s home.

He was arrested and officers seized ‘large quantities’ of MDMA, 1.6 kilos of cannabis, and a ‘quantity’ of cannabis resin, with a street value of over £20,000.

Officers also seized £24,000 in cash.

Gannon was charged on January 16 and pleaded guilty to the offences in February at Oxford Magistrates’ Court.

He was sentenced to 42 months  at Oxford Crown Court on March 24.

Gannon pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class A – MDMA, one count of possession of class A drug cocaine, one count of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug class B – cannabis, and possession with intent to supply a controlled drug class B, cannabis Resin.

Investigating officer Sgt Elizabeth Bell, of the Eynsham Neighbourhood policing team, said: “The quantities of drugs and cash found by police on the execution of the drugs warrant show that Gannon was making a good living from dealing class A and B drugs to the local community.

“His activity was lowering the quality of life of people in the local community and causing distress to many.

“Drug supply is an important issue and Thames Valley Police in west Oxfordshire is committed to reducing crime, especially drug related offences.”
