DRUG dealers arrested during a police sting at a railway station are to be sentenced.

Roy Ashbrook and Daniel Dunne will soon discover their fates after pleading guilty to a string of serious drug offences.

The duo were arrested at Hartford train station on Monday (September 18) after arriving on a train from Liverpool.

Both Ashbrook, 42 and of Nicholas Avenue, Rudheath, and Dunne were charged with being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin.

Dunne, 29 and of Victoria Road in Northwich, was also charged with possession with intent to supply heroin, crack cocaine, and cannabis.

They appeared at Chester Crown Court on Wednesday (October 18) and pleaded guilty to all of the charges.

Sentencing has been scheduled for November 22, again at Chester Crown Court.

Speaking shortly after the sting operation at Hartford, detective sergeant John Lyons of Northwich Local Policing Unit said: “These arrests are part of our ongoing efforts to tackle organised crime and make Cheshire a hostile place for criminals.

“Illegal drugs have a detrimental impact on communities, and we are committed to doing all we can to identify those involved in supplying them in our town.”
