A man’s starting a 4 and a half year prison sentence after a warrant found thousands of pounds worth of class A drugs.
Adam James Larkin, 25 of no fixed abode, was found inside an address in September in West Howe and Detective Constable Williame Pearce says drug dealers are using vulnerable people’s homes as a base.
“We recognise the problems we have with drug dealers setting up in the homes of vulnerable people to use it as a base to supply drugs. This investigation was no different.”
Officers first noticed drug related activity on 26th September 2017 in the West Howe area and a warrant was executed at 10am at an address in Littlemoor Avenue.
Two others were sentenced and have avoided prison:
- John Richard Forrester, aged 35, of South Kinson Drive, Bournemouth, pleaded guilty to charges of possessing a class A drug with intent to supply and supplying a class A drug and was sentenced to 20 months suspended for two years.
- Debi Jane Morris, aged 38, of St. Georges Drive, Bournemouth, admitted being concerned in the supply of a class A drug and received a two year sentence suspended for two years.
Larkin and Morris were both found inside the property with a number of wraps containing a powder, over £1,000 in cash and drug paraphernalia. The powder was later analysed and confirmed to be more than 130 wraps of heroin, with an estimated street value of over £11,000.
Forrester was arrested near Ringwood Road at the same time, having been seen to leave the same address earlier that day.
