The fight against drugs in Littlehampton took a massive leap forward this week as seven of the town’s main cocaine and heroin dealers were sentenced.
Aldo Oringa, 27, Robert Warren, 41, Matthew Shillibeer, 18, Paul White, 21, Stevie-Jane Johnson, 25, and Jerome Spencer, 18, and another 17-year-old, who for legal reasons can’t be named, all pleaded guilty for various drug offences and were sentenced at Chichester Crown Court, this month.
Police have hailed the result as a giant leap forward for the town’s community and a “significant” step in the right direction to clearing the area of class A dealers.
Arun district commander Chief Inspector Jane Derrick said the force would relentless target dealers and were determined to make their lives a “misery”.
