A county lines drug dealer has been sentenced to two years and eight months for drugs offences in Surrey.

Jaden Cobley, 21 of Priory Court, Camberley appeared at Guildford Crown Court yesterday (13 May) after pleading guilty to drug dealing offences in Guildford.

Cobley was arrested on Tuesday, April 13 following a warrant which was executed at an address in Camberley.

Whilst at the address, officers seized Cobley’s mobile phone which was later analysed. Surrey Police’s specialist Drugs Liaison Officer identified the messages sent on them as being consistent with class A drug dealing.

Cobley was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and appeared in court on May 13 where he was sentenced to two years and eight months behind bars. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge.

Investigating Officer, DC Peter Coe said “Cobley’s actions before and after his arrest showed a complete disregard for the law.

“The warrant leading to Cobley’s arrest was a result of a proactive investigation into drug activity in the Guildford area.

“The sentence handed to him today follows a thorough and lengthy investigation which also relies on information gathered from the public in order to build a picture of what is happening and be able to make an arrest.”

A police spokesperson said: “We rely on information from members of the public when it comes to tackling serious organised crime.

“You may think that things such as the smell of cannabis or lots of visitors to a property late at night isn’t worth reporting, but this information helps us build a bigger picture of what’s going on.

“We can assure you that all reports are taken seriously and although it may appear as if they aren’t actioned right away, this intelligence allows us to orchestrate warrants such as these. You can report online, or by calling 101. Always call 999 in an emergency.”
