Seven Bradford drug dealers jailed for combined total of over 21 years

Seven drug dealers have been jailed for a combined total of over 21 years after being caught selling drugs to an undercover police officer.

The group were the latest to appear in court as a result of Operation Errantdance, which targeted “ring and bring” drug dealers in Bradford East.

The men, who worked for the Bobby, Alli and Sully lines, were sentenced at Bradford Crown Court yesterday after admitting to supplying class A drugs to undercover police officers in Spring 2019.

As part of the operation to catch the dealers, two undercover officers wearing concealed cameras posed as drug users who wanted to buy wraps of heroin and crack cocaine.

They got in contact on a daily basis with other users or dealers on the street who called the drug lines and placed orders for them.

The court heard the drugs were then delivered, either by car or bike, and sold to the user for £7 per wrap.

As a result of the operation seven men, aged between 18 and 54 were sentenced to a combined total of 21 years and 10 months in jail. An eighth defendant was given a community order for 12 months with 150 hours of unpaid work.
