Main article content
Matthew Lord aged 23 has been sentenced to three years and four months in prison at Teesside Crown Court today (26th July) after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
Officers attended an address on Studley Road in Hartlepool in March of this year for unrelated matter. Lord was located inside the address as well as a large quantity of crack cocaine, cash and drugs paraphernalia.
Detective Sergeant Jonny Christie from Hartlepool CID said: “Locating the drugs at the property was an added bonus in our search for Matthew Lord.
“The sentence given to him today is welcomed as it means this is one more person taken from our community who cause nothing but misery to the people living in it.
“Class A drugs are dangerous and can be lethal. The Force will not tolerate anyone supplying potentially harmful drugs to our communities and the sentence given to Lord today reflects the seriousness of his crimes.”
