Two drug dealers jailed after being caught selling cocaine and cannabis

TWO drug dealers have been jailed after being caught selling cocaine and cannabis by plain-clothed police officers while on patrol.

On September 7, detectives spotted two women entering 20-year-old Deven McBean’s home in Rodney Close.

After they left and drove away, the officers stopped them and found them to be in possession of cannabis.

McBean’s house was then raided, revealing cannabis and cocaine with a combined street value well in excess of £10,000.

At the time of the raid, McBean and another man had walked to a nearby shop, where they were both arrested.

McBean was charged with being involved in the supply of cocaine and cannabis.

On Wednesday January 4, he was sentenced to three years in prison.

In a separate investigation, another Rugby drug dealer has been jailed for three years and eight months.

On September 1, Callum Lynn, 19, was seen leaving his Tennant Close home and then engaging in short encounters with an array of people across the town.

Detectives suspected he was dealing drugs and, after raiding Lynn’s home, discovered a large quantity of cocaine together with cannabis, cash, mobile phones, scales and small bags for dealing.

Lynn was charged with being concerned in the supply cocaine and cannabis, driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence, and acquiring criminal property.

He was sentenced on January 4.

Det Cons Christopher Batchelder said: “Drug dealers feed on vulnerability and poverty. They spread misery and crime wherever they are, and they’re certainly not welcome in Rugby.

“McBean and Lynn are just two of the countless drug dealers who have discovered that there is a full staff of detectives at Rugby Police Station, and that we are serious about protecting our town from those who would wreck its communities by spreading drugs.”
