Redditch drug dealer jailed

A man has been sentenced to two years in jail for dealing heroin and crack cocaine in Redditch.

Kade Scrivens, 26, formerly of Booth Street, Birmingham, appeared at Warwick Crown Court last Friday (8 February).

On Wednesday 20 September 2017, Scrivens was stopped by police in his BMW 1 series on the A38 Bromsgrove, following concerns of drugs supply in Redditch.

He was found with 6.57 grams of crack cocaine and 3.71 grams of heroin on him, and was arrested for possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Whilst released under investigation, Scrivens was arrested by West Midlands Police for death by dangerous driving in connection with a fatal collision in Darlaston on 22 November 2017. He is currently serving a 7.5 year prison sentence for this offence.

At Friday's court appearance, Scrivens pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply heroin and one count of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine. He was sentenced to two years in prison, to be added to his current sentence.

Following the sentencing, investigating officer PC Thomas Fletcher from the Operational Patrol Unit, West Mercia Police said: "The misery drugs bring are well known, not just to those who take them but those around them and the local community.

"I hope today's sentence shows that we won't tolerate drug dealing in our communities and will proactively target those we believe to be involved, utilising the powers we have to make sure their activity is disrupted."
