Daniel Dady, 37, of The Fairway, Abbots Langley, was sentenced to 28 months in prison at St Albans Crown Court on Monday, August 8 after pleading guilty to two charges of supplying Class A drugs and two charges of possession with intent to supply.

He was also found guilty of one charge of possession of criminal property.

Dady was arrested on the evening of June 27 last year when officers on patrol saw him handing drugs from his car to a man in Trowley Rise, Abbots Langley.

Two further wraps were found inside his vehicle and when Dady’s home was searched a bag containing 115 wraps of cocaine was found, along with a further eight wraps hidden inside a box.

Large sums of money were also found and, at St Albans Crown Court on July 21, £6,428 was seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Investigating officer PC Paul Goble said: “We are committed to tackling drug crime and I hope this sentence sends out a strong message that drug dealing will not be tolerated in Abbots Langley or anywhere in Hertfordshire.

“I would like to urge the local community to report any concerns they may have around drug crime to allow us to build intelligence that we can act on.”
