Rugby Editorial 24th Mar, 2022   0

A COCAINE dealer who was caught selling the Class A drug in a Rugby graveyard has been jailed.

Pires Williams, 20, of Winfield Street, was jailed for three years and four months at Coventry Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to supply.

Officers from Rugby’s Proactive CID team witnessed a drug deal take place in Clifton Road Cemetery on February 10.

Williams was arrested at the scene and a quantity of cash and mobile phones was seized.




A further search found he had an estimated £1,000 worth of the drug on him.

DC Thomas Quinlan, who led the investigation, said: “We are delighted Williams is now behind bars.


“We know only too well the damage drugs can cause and would like to take this opportunity to encourage the community to continue providing us with information if they suspect anyone may be involved in that type of activity.

“Our team is persistent and will do everything we can in the pursuit of disrupting those involved in bringing drugs to the streets of Rugby.”
