A DRUG dealer has been locked up for three years.

Ni­cholas Alexan­der Dar­ling, 29, was caught in Mac­cles­field with co­caine, cannabis and MDMA on Jan­uary 24.

At Ch­ester Crown Court, Dar­ling, of Wood­ford Road, Poyn­ton, ad­mit­ted pos­ses­sion with in­tent to sup­ply co­caine, cannabis and MDMA.

Judge Roger Dut­ton jailed him for three years.

Speak­ing af­ter the sen­tence, In­spec­tor Claire Jes­son said: “We are pleased with the out­come of this and we hope that the sen­tence acts as a de­ter­rent to oth­ers.

“Drug-re­lated ac­tiv­ity is an is­sue that we take ex­tremely se­ri­ously.

“Il­le­gal drugs have no place in Mac­cles­field and Poyn­ton – this sort of ac­tiv­ity has a ma­jor im­pact on the lo­cal com­mu­nity and we will do ev­ery­thing we can to put a stop to it.

“In­for­ma­tion from the pub­lic is vi­tal in the fight against drug-re­lated crime. This type of in­tel­li­gence is im­por­tant and helps us to build up a big­ger pic­ture of what is hap­pen­ing in an area and the best ways of deal­ing with it.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about drug crime can con­tact po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
