A man has been sentenced to eight years in jail for drugs offences.

Duane Law, 27, of Clevedon Road, Luton, was sentenced at Luton Crown Court this morning (Friday, July 3) after being found guilty of possessing with intent to supply heroin, cocaine, and cannabis.

Investigation Officer Gary Hales, from Luton Serious Crime Investigation Team, said: “Drugs ruin so many people’s lives, so we’re delighted that Law has been locked away for such a long time and will therefore be unable to supply these dangerous drugs to people. 30kg of harmful drugs are also now off the streets and will not be causing harm to our communities.

“I also hope this sentence acts as a deterrent to people who see drug dealing as harmless or a quick way to make money. We take drugs offences extremely seriously as part of our mission to protect people and fight crime, and will continue to tackle such criminals and bring them to justice.”

In total 7kg of heroin, 1kg of cocaine and 22kg of cannabis were seized by police in January 2015 after a warrant was carried out at a property in The Crossway.
