Grays drug dealer avoids jail after supplying cocaine in Brentwood

Guns and drugs were recovered during police raids in Brentwood and Romford

A drug dealer from Grays has avoided jail after selling cocaine in Brentwood. 

42-year-old, Warren Ryan, was arrested following a series of dawn raids in Brentwood and Romford earlier this year.

He admitted to supplying Class A drugs on two occasions in April this year. 

Ryan was sentenced to two years imprisonment, suspended for two years, at Basildon Crown Court on Thursday, 22 August. He has also been ordered to complete 200 hours unpaid work. 

“All too often we see people who go out on a Friday and Saturday night and think it is acceptable to buy and take Class A drugs – it is not,” said Chief Insp, Lewis Basford. 

“Every single drug bought will be at the human cost of someone who has been exploited, harmed, threatened with violence or in some cases made to perpetrate violence.

Drugs and weapons were recovered during the operation.

“Children may be exploited, trafficked, threatened or hurt by dealers looking to flood the streets with their illegal wares.”

“In the same way vulnerable people with drug addictions may also be forced or exploited into selling drugs.”

Officers arrested 18 individuals after the raids in Romford and Brentwood on Wednesday, 12 June.

One of the men police arrested during the raids.

It was part of an operation launched in February aimed at stopping people supplying drugs to people in bars and pubs across Brentwood at the weekend.

Three other people have already been sentenced following the arrests. 

Jonathan Maughan, 23, of no fixed abode, was jailed for 25 months after pleading guilty to five counts of supplying a Class A drug.

He was arrested in Rollason Way, Brentwood, and dealt drugs on three occasions in March this year.

Thomas Kemp, 33, from Brentwood, was jailed for 20 months after pleading guilty to two counts of supplying a Class A drug.

Dennie Jones, 23, of Ongar, was jailed for 25 months after pleading guilty to five counts of supplying a Class A drug and one count of offering to supply a Class B drug.
