Drug dealers are sent to prison

TWO drug dealers have been jailed after being caught with a haul of illegal drugs by police.

Grigorijs Cigrajs, 29, of Eversfield Place, St Leonards, 30-year-old Danya Winkler, along with a 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were spotted by officers in a car in Gillsman’s Hill, on January 3 last year.

Heroin and cocaine were found inside the car, along with weighing scales and cash. All three were arrested and taken to Hastings Police Station. Cigrajs and the 17-year-old were charged with possession of cocaine and heroin with intent to supply, and Winkler, of Durban Road, London, was also charged with the same offence.

Cigrajs and the teenager both entered pleaded guilty when they appeared at Hove Crown Court last week.

He was jailed for two years and the youth was referred to the Youth Court for a date to be set later this month for sentencing.

Winkler pleaded not guilty but the jury convicted him following a trial and he was sentenced to seven years in prison.
