County lines drug dealer jailed after being caught with heroin and crack in Rugby

Rugby Editorial 24th Jan, 2023   0

A COUNTY lines drug dealer has been jailed after being arrested in Rugby.

At Warwick Crown Court, Tajorn Brown, 19, of Ruislip in London, pleaded guilty to possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply, and one count each of possession of class A drugs and having a bladed article.

He was sentenced to three years in prison.

Officers from Rugby Proactive CID arrested Brown in Maffey Court in August after CCTV operators in the town reported spotting a suspected drug deal in West Leyes.




Brown was searched and officers seized cannabis, a knife, cash and phones. A further search in custody discovered 34 wraps of heroin and 64 wraps of crack cocaine.

Officers found evidence to suggest the drugs were being imported from London as part of a county lines criminal operation.


Det Cons Tom Quinlan from Rugby Proactive CID said: “This is another example of how we are taking a proactive approach to tackling county lines drug crime in Rugby.

“This investigation demonstrates our commitment to finding and prosecuting those involved in this kind of activity, which we know fuels violent crime across the county.”
