Prison For Drug Dealer Who Travelled From London To Cambridge

A woman who travelled from London to Cambridge to deal drugs has been jailed.

Police raided a home in Fulbourn Road, Cambridge, on 13 September last year after suspecting Courtnie Jevans was dealing class A drugs.

Inside they found the 23-year-old alongside drug users. Officers also found three mobile phones, one which was linked to dealing class A drugs.

Through their investigations police were able to show that Jevans had travelled between London and Cambridge between July and September to operate a county line.

At Huntingdon Crown Court on Friday (17 March) Jevans, of Sunnybank, Newton Abbot, Devon, was sentenced to two years and six months in prison after previously pleading guilty to two counts of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

Jevans was one of 44 people arrested across Cambridgeshire in September and October last year as part of Operation Hypernova.

It was launched to make the county a hostile place towards county lines drug dealers, prevent further exploitation of young and vulnerable people and reduce serious street-based violence.

Officer dismantled 33 county lines and took class A and B drugs worth more than £600,000 off the streets of Cambridgeshire. Cash, assets and several weapons were also seized.

Detective Constable Tom Corbett, who investigated, said: “Jevans was operating a fairly sophisticated county line, bringing drugs from London to sell in Cambridge on a regular basis.

“We would like to take this opportunity to remind those travelling to Cambridge to deal drugs that they are not welcome and will be targeted by police.”
