Further investigations into Lloyd’s dealings found he was “responsible for the supply of drugs within Chorley”, Lancashire.
On Friday, July 3, appeared at Preston Crown Court and pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply crack cocaine, possession with intent to supply heroin, possession with intent to supply cocaine and possession with intent to supply cannabis.
He was sentenced to five and a half years prison and a forfeiture order was made for the drugs and cash.
PC Edward Carroll, of Lancashire Constabulary’s South Division Target Team, said: “This is an excellent result for the community of Chorley and once again shows that the supply of controlled substances into the area by criminals from neighbouring counties will not be tolerated by the public or the police.
“We will continue to proactively target those committing organised crime in our area and will act on any information given to the police.”
