Five charged with Class A drug dealing after police raids in Skegness

They appeared in court this morning.

Five people have been charged with conspiracy to supply a class A controlled substance following police warrants in Skegness and Ingoldmells yesterday.

The five people who have been charged include:

  • Mark Sewell, 39, of Bank Drive, Ingoldmells
  • Jason Gregory, 29, of Grosvenor Road, Skegness
  • Jamie Horton, 39, of Lumley Road, Skegness
  • Lindsay Stephen, 48 of Grosvenor Road, Skegness
  • Shane Ratcliffe, 30, of Albany Road, Skegness

All five people appeared at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, November 8.

This comes after police has a ‘day of action’ on Tuesday, November 7 in which a number of drugs warrants were carried out at addresses in Skegness and Ingoldmells.

The operation was led by Inspector Matt Bennison and his local team, and officers were joined by colleagues from Nottinghamshire as the warrants were executed earlier today.

DCI Richard Myszczyszyn said: “We’re well aware of the effect drug-related crime can have on local communities and we hope this type of police-led action sends a strong message to our communities that we will do everything in our power to try to keep drugs off our streets.

“Keep talking to us, keep giving us that information and we will keep acting on it.

“Also, anyone who might be involved in or considering getting involved in this type of crime – be assured that this type of behaviour won’t be tolerated in Lincolnshire and we will do all that we can to see you are brought to justice.

“We were pleased to have members of the Independent Advisory Group out with us today, and on behalf of all the Lincolnshire officers involved I’d like to thank our colleagues from Nottinghamshire for their assistance with this operation.”
