Man jailed for dealing drugs at Rotherham bus station

Have your say

A man caught dealing heroin at Rotherham bus station has been jailed for two years by a judge at Sheffield Crown Court.

Dayle Maddison, aged 22, was seen on CCTV ‘making a transaction’ in April.

Michael Tooley, prosecuting, said: “CCTV operators witnessed a transaction between this defendant and another male.

“Items were passed between the two of them and officers were dispatched to the scene.”

Maddison, of Lapwater Walk, Wingfield, Rotherham, was arrested and taken to Main Street police station.

He was found to have 15 £10 deals or wraps of diamorphine in his possession.

He made no comment in his interview with police.

Dermot Hughes, defending, said Maddison had the potential to change his ways and was ‘unlikely to trouble the courts again’.

But Judge Paul Watson QC jailed him for two years and told him: “Those who deal in Class A drugs go to prison, irrespective of good character.”
