Man jailed for 45 months for drug offences in Haverhill

A man from Haverhill has been sentenced for drug offences in the town.

Harry Tillett, (pictured above) of Tudor Close, pleaded guilty and was jailed for 45 months for being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine between March 12, 2022, and December 15, 2022.

Officers conducted a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at a property in Anglian Place in the town on Wednesday, December 14, and  a quantity of suspected class A drugs were located as were three mobile phones and nearly £300 in cash. Tillett, 61, was arrested and subsequently charged.

This was a joint operation to tackle County Lines between the Serious Crime Disruption Teams (SCDT) for the west and east and the local Scorpion and Sentinel teams.

The SCDT core aim is to disrupt serious and organised gangs whose criminal activity focuses on issues such as drug supply and harmful personal acquisitive crime such as robbery/burglary. The team develop the relevant information and intelligence, conduct enforcement activity and then provide an officer who will build the case and see the investigation through to trial.
