Two Grantham drug dealers have been sentenced in separate cases at Lincoln Crown Court.

On October 13 Sebastion Joaoa, aged 28, was sentenced to three years six months in prison for possession with intent to supply heroin, possession of cocaine and possession of cannabis.

Police attended Huntingtower Road, Grantham on August 15 2013 following a report of a man dealing drugs. Joaoa ran away and was seen to discard a large package of goods which he took from the front of his trousers. This was recovered and he was stopped and arrested. Joaoa pleaded guilty to the above offences.

In another case, Scott Fendley aged 42, was sentenced to five years six months in prison on October 21 for possession with intent to supply heroin and cocaine. He pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine and heroin found on March 15 last year for which he was given 12 months imprisonment to run concurrently.

Fendley was stopped by police in his vehicle in the early hours of the morning. Three clear bags containing eight wraps of heroin and one wrap of cocaine were found hidden behind the driver’s door panel. He was found not guilty of possession with intent to supply by the jury, but had already pleaded to the possession.

On June 12 last year police executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act at Fendley’s address. A drugs dog indicated a find on an extension reel and when this was examined 37 wraps of heroin and 18 wraps of cocaine were found. Fendley was found guilty of possession with intent to supply by a jury following a five day trial at Lincoln Crown Court.
