Police arrested two people after raiding an address in Watford town centre
A drug dealer who ran a county lines drug network in the Watford area has been jailed for more than seven years.
Justin Hawkes, aged 46, of no fixed address was sentenced to seven years for the supply of class A drugs (crack cocaine).
Rebecca Prowse, aged 33, of Brindle Court, Watford, received a two year prison sentence suspended for two years, a rehabilitation activity order and a nine month drug referral order for the supply of class A drugs (crack cocaine).
PC Hunni Glanville, from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Operational Support Group, said: “Vulnerable people are often the ones who suffer the most being drawn into criminal activities, drugs and even sexual exploitation.
“Our operations are making a significant impact on the county lines network operating in Hertfordshire and we will continue to disrupt gang activity and stop the supply of drugs into our towns.”
