Drugs runner jailed after dealing to a police officer

Daily Echo: Dealer sold to undercover cop Dealer sold to undercover cop

A SOUTHAMPTON man, said to act as a principal runner for a city-based drugs network, has been jailed for three years.

Ian Dolman, 46, was arrested after selling crack cocaine and heroin to an undercover police officer making test purchases in a major Hampshire police initiative to rid the streets of drug-related crime.

Dolman, of Golden Grove, admitted ten charges of supplying the hard drugs on seven occasions in April.

Prosecutor Tom Wright told the city crown court how Dolman dealt with an undercover officer who was known as ‘Ivan’, firstly in Hoglands Park, where the officer noticed that other people were waiting.

Dolman was carrying 40 wraps, distributing nine to a woman and six to a man before handing over three to ‘Ivan’.

The court heard that the officer later made another purchase in Hoglands Park but it was mostly carried out at the Itchen Bridge.

Dolman, Mr Wright added, received drugs in return for acting as a runner.

Drugs kill? Can you explain how the overwhelming majority of drug users don't die from "drugs" then?

I highly recommend you read this book

It does not glamourise nor condone drug dealing, but it does scotch the myths that drug dealers a) live any sort of lavish lifestyle b) are greedy and c) do not work. Most drug dealers don't even make the equivalent of minimum wage, despite "working" 18+ hour days, 7 days a week.

Don't rubbish the idea, actually read it. It's fascinating and an eye-opener, and might actually give you an insight into why solving the drug problem isn't as simple as just getting tough on crime.

Hantslass needs to realise that the british government(s) for many years protected & encouraged the drugs trade (the opium wars were not fought on the streets of London or Los Angeles). It is a fact that there are more deaths attributed to prescription drugs than to illicit drugs, whether by overdoses under medical supervision, allergic reactions, or inappropriate prescription.
Why is it that in Afghanistan under Taliban rule, the production of opium was no more than 20% of the level of production under the current regime? Somebody is making a lot of money, at the expense of British military personnel. Learn all the words before you start singing!.
