    Dealer Jailed Over £37,000 Drugs Find At His Leeds Home… 

    A drug dealer caught with £37,500 worth of cocaine and cannabis at his home in Leeds has been jailed for seven and a half years – on his birthday.

    When officers from Leeds district’s specialist drugs team, Operation Quartz, executed a warrant at Warren Welsh’s home in Juniper Place, Harehills, they found the drugs hidden in the house and an outbuilding.

    A search of the house in May also uncovered ‘dealer lists’ of clients’ details, digital weighing scales, a hydraulic press and grip seal bags used for selling drugs.

    Expert analysis identified a total of 750 grams of cocaine in compressed white blocks with a street value of £30,000, 150 grams of cocaine rocks and powder with a street value of £6,000 and 10 bags of cannabis skunk with a street value of £1,500.

    Welsh was charged with three counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and one of possession of cannabis with intent to supply.

    Having pleaded guilty at a previous hearing, Welsh, 26, was jailed at Leeds Crown Court on his 26th birthday.

    Det Insp Jaz Khan, from Leeds District Quartz Team, said: “This was a very significant seizure of drugs that were clearly destined to be sold on the streets of Leeds where they would fuel the crime and anti-social behaviour that accompanies Class A drugs use.

    “Welsh celebrated his 26th birthday by starting a very significant prison sentence. We hope this will provide some reassurance to people living in those communities and send out a clear deterrent message to others who are involved in the supply of drugs.

    “Officers from the Quartz Team will continue to gather intelligence from the community and elsewhere and focus their attention on those who think they can get away with dealing drugs without having to face the consequences.

    Leeds Dial-A-Drug Gang Is Sent To Prison For 15 Years 

    Published on Saturday 24 November 2012 06:50

    JAILED:  Daniel Bodally and below, Tyrone Jeffers. 

    Four men have been jailed after police broke up a major drugs line supplying class A drugs to the Gipton and Harehills areas of Leeds.

     

    The gang members were involved in running a mobile phone hotline operation known locally as the ‘Jeff Drugs Line’.

    Tyrone Jeffers, 27, of Foundry Mill Drive pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply class A drugs and was jailed for six-and-a-half years.

    His accomplice, Daniel Bodally, 27, of Cowper Mount, Harehills, also admitted the same charge and was jailed for three-and-a-half years

    Mark Jackson, 26, of Easterly Road, Gipton and Michael Worville, 24, of Easdale Mount, Seacroft, acted as street dealers for Jeffers and Bodally.

    Both Jackson and Worville also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

    The pair were sentenced to two years, six months and two years, three months respectively.

    The court heard officers from Leeds Quartz, a specialist drugs team based at Millgarth Police Station, began an investigation into the Jeff line in December last year after receiving intelligence that drugs were being dealt from a property on Seaforth Road, Harehills.

    Surveillance was carried out over an eight week period and Worville and Jackson were seen on many occasions leaving the property and meeting known drug users.

    These users were then followed and searched where varying amounts of crack cocaine and heroin were found.

    Forensic analysis of mobile phones seized from drug users showed that earlier calls had been placed to one of two mobile phone numbers used by Jeffers and Bodally.

    After the hearing, Det Insp Jaz Khan, from Leeds Quartz, said the convictions were the result of a determined investigation.

    He added: “This investigation has led to the end of a long-running drugs ring supplying heroin and crack cocaine on to the streets of Harehills and Gipton.

    “Their guilty pleas were a demonstration of the weight of evidence against them and I hope their jail sentences will act as warning of how seriously we take those who believe they can peddle drugs”
