Brentwood drug dealer jailed

The leader of a drugs line supplying cocaine and ketamine in Brentwood has been jailed.

Delvin Hemmings ran the line from his home in Boleyn Gardens and had four runners working for him.

All five have now been sentenced after Hemmings was jailed for two years and nine months at Basildon Crown Court on Thursday October 14.

The 34-year-old had previously admitted being concerned in supplying cocaine and ketamine.

Officers carried out a warrant under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 at his flat on June 2.

They found £5,000 in cash and seized 33 pairs of designer shoes, a Canada Goose coat, a designer backpack and an Apple MacBook Air. These will now all be subject of a Proceeds of Crime hearing.

One of his runners, Elle Stubley, was arrested at another flat in Boleyn Gardens, where officers found cocaine with a street value to up to £1,080.

Jack Sleet, another runner, was arrested at his home in Rowhedge, Brentwood, on the same day.

Stubley and Sleet were sentenced on September 25.

Stubley, 22, had previously admitted being concerned in supplying cocaine and ketamine, and possession of cocaine.

She was sentenced to an 18-month prison term, suspended for two years, and ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work and 30 days of rehabilitation.

Sleet, 20, had previously admitted being concerned in supplying cocaine and ketamine.

He was sentenced to a nine-month prison term, suspended for two years. He was ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work and 30 days of rehabilitation activity.

Two other runners for Hemmings were sentenced on March 23.

Owen Kelly and Joseph Okello were arrested at Okello’s home – also in Boleyn Gardens – on November 19 last year.

Officers seized 134 wraps of cocaine and the pair were charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine.

Okello, 21, was jailed for three years.

Kelly, 20, of no fixed address, was given a two year jail term suspended for two years and ordered to complete 200 hours of unpaid work and rehabilitation.
