A 24-year-old student who was found to be dealing drugs across the city from his bedroom has been jailed for over two years.

David Herbert Levy, 24, was arrested in April last year when officers acting on intelligence carried out a warrant at a house on Ecclesall Road, where Levy was living at the time.

In his room they found an array of drugs which were seized and later, after analysis, found to be cannabis, ketamine and magic mushrooms.

Levy, of Wayland Road, Sheffield, appeared before Sheffield Crown Court last week on Thursday 7 June where he was jailed for two-and-a-half years for possession with intent to supply drugs after entering a guilty plea.

Temporary Sergeant Scott Szymczak, from the City Centre Neighbourhood Team said: “Intelligence gathered that Levy was involved in the distribution of drugs whilst studying in Sheffield led us to carry out a warrant on his address.

“What we found was a significant amount of drugs, in addition to other items typically involved in the possession and supply of drugs. Levy’s phones and laptops were also seized and analysed, with text messages revealing he had been liaising with people to both buy and sell drugs across Sheffield.

“Drugs are an absolute blight on this city and we are committed to tackling the supply and distribution of them. We do need the public’s help though. If you have any concerns about drugs where you are living, get in touch with us on 101. If you don’t feel confident speaking to police you can also talk to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
