Two men jailed after large-scale heroin and crack cocaine bust in Lancaster

Two men have been jailed after a large-scale heroin and crack cocaine bust on the Marsh in Lancaster.

Both men were arrested in April 2020 after police recovered a large quantity of Class A drugs along with several thousands of pounds in cash.

Kai Weerdmeester, 21, from Doncaster, was convicted of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs – heroin and crack cocaine and possession of criminal property, and sentenced to three years.

Dan Prendergast, 20, from Doncaster, was convicted of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs – heroin and crack cocaine, and sentenced to 18 months.

PC Georgie Abram, from Lancaster and Morecambe police, said "The selling of crack cocaine and heroin on our streets has a significant detrimental impact on our communities.

"We hope these sentences that have been handed out send a strong message to out of town drug dealers that you are not welcome in our town and in our city: we will find out about you, we will target you and we will send you to prison."
