TWO men have been sent to prison for the conspiracy to deal drugs in Herefordshire.

Jack Davis, 33 and of Stoke Lacy, near Bromyard, and Ben Scotford, 36 and of Hereford, pleaded guilty to all charges, West Mercia Police said.

Davis was given a five-year prison term and Scotford was handed a 30-month sentence, both for conspiracy to supply class A drugs when they appeared at court.

Detective constable Fiona Morgan said: "I welcome the sentence from the court who recognise that Davis and Scotford are a blight on our community.


"Drug dealers take advantage of vulnerable people and ruin lives, and we are determined to protect our communities.

"These sentences show we will prosecute anyone involved in drugs supply and at any level.

"We urge anyone with any concerns about drug crime to please get in touch as working alongside our communities is vital to tackling drug crime."
