Jamie Copp was not a class A drug user and became a dealer in Bideford purely for the money. The 20-year-old travelled to London every three days to buy £1,200 worth of heroin and crack and then sold it on the streets for £1,500; making a profit of £100 a day. Copp was working with a London-based County Lines gang which took orders from addicts by mobile phone and sent him to deliver the drugs. He had been dealing in this was for about four months before he was caught by police, who saw him supplying a known user in Clovelly Road. Copp, of Brennacott Place, Bideford, admitted possession of heroin and crack with the intention of supply and possessing £1,040 as criminal property. He was jailed for a total of two years and four months in a Young Offenders Institution at Exeter Crown Court. Judge Timothy Rose told him: When you started committing this offence, you were not under any duress or threats of violence. You went into it because of the money you could make out of it. You were not a class A drug user. You did not get into it to get drugs for yourself. You were in it purely for the financial advantage. You are only 20 and have no previous involvement in crime. It is baffling why you let yourself be drawn down this path, and nothing less than a personal catastrophe for you and your family. Caroline Bolt, prosecuting, said police became suspicious of drug dealing activity in Bideford on March 19 this year and found Copp with drugs and cash in the pocket of his track suit. He had a total of 24 wraps, each with a street value of £10 to £20. He told them he had really f***ed up and planned to sell the rest of his drugs before taking a train to London. Another six wraps of cocaine or heroin were found at his home with a total value of £300. He said he was making £100 a day by dealing. Rupert Taylor, defending, said Copp realised what he was doing was wrong but was bullied into carrying on by threats from the gang in London. He said Copp had done well in school and had started a course at an agricultural college. He has a caring and stable family and should be given a second chance. He said: He has made a once-in-a lifetime mistake and asks for a once-in-a lifetime opportunity.
