Dealer jailed for selling drugs

Daily Echo: Dealer jailed for selling drugs Dealer jailed for selling drugs

A DRUG dealer who sold narcotics to feed his habit has been jailed for three years.

Louis Roser wept in the dock at Southampton Crown Court as he was sent down to the cells after pleading guilty to supplying cannabis and two counts of offering to supply Class A drugs.

The court heard how Roser, 22, of Cheriton Avenue, Southampton, was arrested in May last year after police stopped a car he was travelling in.

They found a JD sports bag stashed with £1,000 cash and a wash bag containing digital scales, deal bags, a list of dealers and clients and four other deal bags containing traces of cocaine.

The court heard how officers analysing the mobile telephone found evidence pointing to cannabis deals with pictures of his stash.

They also found messages quoting prices for Class A drugs MDMA and cocaine.

But Zoe Van den Bosche for Roser, stressed her client did not directly sell the Class A drugs and added: “He made that offer to test the water to see if there were any takers and there’s no evidence there were any takers.”

She said the bags with traces of cocaine were for personal use, claiming he was an addict.

As well as being jailed Roser – who has 26 previous convictions, including seven for drugs possession – was also ordered to pay a £120 victim surcharge.

Quite. I have a grudging, well not exactly respect but recognition, for someone who accepts his punishment like he should, and I feel sorry for someone who has fallen in with a bad crowd or something and fallen foul of the law. But 26 convictions in? Yeh he should be hardened by now.
