The tables have turned for a man dealing class A drugs in the Burngreave area of the city, as he has now been dealt a two year and three month prison sentence for his “selfish and greedy” offending.

Kyle Checkley, 22, was arrested on Thursday, 20 July on Grimesthorpe Road South, after officers from Sheffield’s Tasking Team who were patrolling undercover, identified him with a group of men in the street and suspected him of dealing drugs.

Checkley, of Firshill Walk, attempted to run and tried to dispose of a large, black plastic bag he had in his possession, however officers detained him and recovered the property, which contained a large amount of suspected class A drugs.

PC Gareth Webb investigating said: “Checkley was charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and remanded into custody.

“While in prison awaiting his court date, he was also found to be in possession of a mobile phone and was additionally charged with this offence.”

When forensically tested, the contents of the bag recovered identified 76 wraps of crack cocaine and 39 wraps of heroin, with an approximate street value of £1,150.

Checkley pleaded guilty to all the offences, and appeared at Sheffield Crown Court on Tuesday, 10 April to be sentenced.

PC Webb continued: “Drugs are a blight to our communities and cause untold pain and heartache for so many families who have to watch their loved ones deteriorate through the use of drugs.

“Checkley’s offending in dealing drugs is selfish and greedy, with no thought or consideration for the impact it will have on those he was choosing to sell to, with just a pure interest in the money to be made, and a complete disregard for the law.

“I hope he has time to reflect on his offending now he is behind bars, and I also hope this sends a strong message to anyone else who believes they are above the law, that we are determined to keep making arrests and disrupting those who choose to be involved in any form of criminal activity in Sheffield.”

PC Webb: “Checkley’s offending in dealing drugs is selfish and greedy, with no thought or consideration for the impact it will have on those he was choosing to sell to, with just a pure interest in the money to be made, and a complete disregard for the law.
