TWO drug dealers have been convicted after a police crackdown.

Paul White, 21, of Velyn Avenue, Chichester, was sentenced to two years in prison for five offences of supplying crack cocaine, two of supplying heroin, and three of being concerned in the supply of heroin.

Matthew Shillibeer, 18, of Linden Road, Bognor Regis, was also sentenced at Chichester Crown Court.

He was given a 20-month detention and training order, for two offences of supplying crack cocaine and one of supplying heroin.

Five other men from West Sussex and London were convicted after police raided addresses.

Chief Inspector Jane Derrick, from Sussex police, said: ‘This success reaffirms our commitment not to tolerate the supply and distribution of illegal drugs in this area. If you choose to make life a misery for those who you are dealing to then we will catch up with you. We will use every opportunity to target you and to make your life as uncomfortable as possible.’
