Drug dealer fined after police raid

A NORTH Somerset drugs dealer has been fined �880 after admitting possessing Class B drugs that he intended to sell on.

Ryan Crabb, aged 22, was fined and sentenced to 10 months in prison, suspended for two years, at Bristol Crown Court on Monday. If he fails to pay within four weeks he will be sent to prison and could still be liable to pay the debt when released.

Police caught him with various drugs including a small quantity of cannabis and mephedrone as well as �880 in cash.

Crabb, of Laurel Gardens, Yatton, pleaded guilty to possessing the drugs with intention to supply at North Somerset Courthouse earlier this year.

Kirstie Cogram, the manager of the financial investigation unit for Avon and Somerset police said: “It is important that criminals operating across our force area are not able to enjoy the profits from their criminal activities.”
