Coventry Editorial 8th Feb, 2022

A DUDLEY man has been jailed for five years and seven months after pleading guilty to drugs offences after police swooped on a property in Nuneaton.

Kaine Cochrane, 23, of Cypress Road, was arrested when CID officers from searched a flat in Borough Way, Nuneaton after spotting a suspected drug deal in November 2021.

They found Cochrane in the flat along with drugs, scales and cash.

He was at Warwick Crown Court after pleading guilty to possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply, and being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin.

Det Con Jeni-Leigh Gore said: “Drug dealing causes a whole range of issues for the wider community including violence, theft and anti-social behaviour.

“This makes people feel unsafe in their homes and we won’t tolerate it.

“We target areas with known drug problems and patrol in plain clothes and unmarked cars looking for criminal activity.

He urged anyone who witnesses suspicious activity to report it here or alternatively by calling police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
