A 20-year-old man is starting a three year prison sentence for drugs offences and common assault after he was convicted at Sheffield Crown Court this week (Wednesday 27 February).

Harry Bramall, of Crown Place in Sheffield, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, possession of Class B drugs, possession of a blade and common assault at an earlier hearing.

He was sentenced to three years and three months in prison and was also ordered to pay back £460 under the of Proceeds of Crime Act.

On the 12 December 2018, officers approached Bramall in the Duke Street area of Sheffield, he refused to talk to them and ran towards Park Hill flats. After a short pursuit on foot, Bramall was detained, biting an officer in the struggle.

Investigating Officer DS Richard Armstrong said: “Bramall was in possession of 52 individual deals of Class A drugs that night, he had 31 wraps of crack cocaine and 21 wraps of heroin, this haul had a street value of £580. Bramall was also carrying a lock knife whilst he went about his nightly business.

“Further searches of Bramall’s home lead to us recovering more cash and an amount of Class B drugs. I am pleased we detained him that night and I am pleased with the sentence he received.

“The fact that he has also been asked to pay back an amount of cash is satisfying, why should he benefit financially from this type of activity? Let this be a warning to other dealers in the city, we will find you and we will deal with you.”
