TWO people, including one from Warrington, have been locked up by the courts for peddling drugs on the streets.

Callum Foran and Adam Wilson have been put behind bars for their role in the supply of illegal drugs in Runcorn.

The pair were handed terms of immediate imprisonment when they appeared before Chester Crown Court to be sentenced.

The court heard from Peter Hussey, prosecuting, how 23-year-old Foran and 26-year-old Wilson were involved in the distribution of class A substances.

On July 19, they were rumbled in Runcorn in possession of crack cocaine and heroin with intent to supply quantities of the drugs to others.

On the supply of drugs, a judge said: “This type of offending is prevalent, and class A drugs are dangerous and toxic.

“The supply of such drugs is responsible for violent crime, causes misery for countless people, and is a curse on our communities.”

Both Foran, of Chiltern Road in Orford, and Wilson, of Wetlands Lane in Chesterfield, each admitted charges of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin.

The former was sentenced by judge Steven Everett to five years and seven months in prison, while the latter was incarcerated for 32 months.

In addition, both were told they must each pay a £228 victim surcharge.

Orders were also made to confiscate and deprive the defendants of £276.65 in cash and mobile phones seized from them, as well as the destruction of the drugs found in their possession.
