Leo Connelly jailed Leo Connelly jailed

Leo Connelly (30), of Birmingham, was sentenced to six years in prison last Thursday (16 May). 

In February, Connelly was found guilty of possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine. 

In August of 2023, Staffordshire Police traced the ‘Tony’ drug line back to a property in Stonydelph, Tamworth. This was the home of a vulnerable woman. 

Detective Sergeant Jon Bradbury stated: “The circumstances were consistent with the cuckooing method of drug supply; where the home of a vulnerable person is taken over by criminals to use it to store, sell or take drugs.”

The police seized 36 deals of heroin, 146 deals of crack cocaine, £500 cash, and several mobile phones from the Tamworth property. Connelly was also present at the address at the time of the police’s arrival. 

Connelly received his sentence at Stafford Crown Court.
