A Guildford man has been sentenced to two years six months in jail after pleading guilty to “being concerned” with the supply of class A drugs, and possessing criminal property.

Myron Haines, 22, of Whately Close, Guildford, was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on Friday, September 3.

Haines was arrested on February 18 following an investigation into a drug line involved in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin. Officers seized a number of items including drugs, cash and a mobile phone which was later proved to be involved in the supply of class A drugs.

His arrested was for the concern of the supply of class A drugs between January and February, 2021, for which he was subsequently charged.

Investigating officer PC Adam Grindlay, said: “The investigation which led to Haines’ arrest was part of ongoing covert work Surrey Police are carrying out every day to disrupt the supply of class A drugs in the county.

“We rely on members of the public reporting suspected drug activity in their area to help us build a bigger picture of organised crime. All reports are taken seriously and the combined intelligence helps us to carry out arrests such as this.”

A statement said the signs of potential drug dealing were as follows:

Lots of visitors, who don’t stay very long, arriving at all times of the day and night.

People waiting in cars outside particular properties exchanging small packets or cash.

Lots of visitors bringing items such as TVs or bikes but leaving empty handed.

Lone or vulnerable neighbours suddenly having groups of young men living at their address.

If you have reason to suspect illegal activity, the police would like to know:

Time, date and place of the activity.

Vehicle registrations and the make, model and colour.

Descriptions of people and details of what they were doing.

Direction they travelling to and from.

How many times you have seen them. Is it always at the same time of day?

The police said: “Don’t put yourself at risk while gathering this information. Please always pass the information to the police and do not confront or approach suspected drug dealers.”

You can report online or by calling 101. Always call 999 in an emergency.
