Crack cocaine and heroin drug dealer jailed after stop and search


A 30-year-old drug dealer from Warrington has been jailed after officers found class A drugs on his person during a stop and search.

Kamen Smith appeared at Liverpool Crown Court on Thursday 4 July where he pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs (crack cocaine and heroin).

As a result, the 30-year-old drug dealer, of Molyneux Avenue, Warrington, was jailed for three years and four months.

The court heard that on Friday 6 January 2023, police in Warrington were notified that two men were conducting a drug deal at the Friar Penketh public house, Warrington. One of these men was identified by plain-clothed officers as Kamen Smith, who was promptly arrested shortly after.
When stopped by officers, Kamen said that he had “ten wraps of white and twelve wraps of brown” on his person containing both powder and rocks. Searching officers also seized a phone from him, for which he refused to provide the PIN code.
Following the search, officers from Warrington LPU conducted a warrant at Smith’s address and seized two sets of scales from his bedroom. These scales were found to have traces of white powder on them.
Choosing not to defend himself, Smith answered “no comment” throughout his interview and was subsequently charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs (crack cocaine and heroin).

Appearing at Liverpool Crown Court Smith pleaded guilty to the offences and was sentenced to 40 months (three years and four months) imprisonment.
Following sentencing Police Constable Sian Doyle, of Warrington’s Area Investigation Team, said: “This result shows our continued zero tolerance of both illegal drug taking and supply across Warrington and, due to his own choices, Smith will now be facing over three years behind bars.
“I hope that Smith’s conviction provides reassurance to local residents that police in Warrington are doing all we can to take illegal drugs off our streets and acts as a warning for any other dealers who are planning to do the same.”
