Carlisle Drug Criminal Jailed Following Cumbria Constabulary’s Investigations

Cumbria Constabulary have stressed they will continue to target high-harm drugs offences and disrupt the supply chain in Carlisle as the latest offender was jailed for more than two years.

Alistair Pape, 39, of the city’s Garden Street, received his sentence of 27 months at Carlisle Crown Court, June 20, following a successful drugs warrant executed by officers.

DC James Gisborne was the officer overseeing the investigation and speaking after the sentencing, he said: “Disrupting community drug supply is among our policing priorities in Cumbria.

“Drugs criminals should know that we will target them robustly and bring them to justice.

“We have a strong track record of this in Cumbria and will continue our efforts to tackle the crime surrounding high harm drugs such as heroin.”

Charges were brought following the investigation and Pape pleaded guilty to possessing class A drugs with intent to supply.

The warrant was executed at his home on Garden Street on March 25, with officers seizing heroin, cash and other paraphernalia suspected to be linked to drugs offences.
