Yesterday I bought the local newspaper came across some stories worthy of inclusion on this blog, so to take a breather from the proliferation of murder, I present first off, the capture of a small cluster of criminals and their subsequent jailing for drugs offences. The people convicted were Tony Graver, from Mirfield, Huddersfield, his girlfriend Kerry Shaw, Dale Brough from Tyersal and Simon Stevenson from West Bowling. Their downfall came Graver went to a garage rented by Brough. Both Brough and Stevenson were at the garage. When Graver drove away from the garage, situated on an industrial estate, it was stopped by police and searched, leading them to arrest him on suspicion of supplying drugs. Police moved in and arrested Brough and Stevenson, leading to searches at all the accused homes.
A search of the Graver home threw up Class C drugs - Diazepam - and paraphenalia for cutting, weighing and bagging. Police also thoroughly searched the garage and it`s loft, producing more class C drugs - Benzylpiperazine - and Cocaine. The loft was being prepared for growing Cannabis. But despite being on bail, Graver was observed parking a car belonging to Shaw at the Birch Services on the M62. This car was thoroughly searched leading to the discovery of a small box attached to the underneath, containing Cocaine. Police searched Shaws` home finding more Cocaine and class C drugs that included BZP. Fingerprint evidence clearly linked her to items seized at the garage. Sentences handed down at Bradford Crown Court saw Graver receive 12 years, Dale Brough 8 years, Stevenson & Shaw both received 7 years each. Kerry Shaw had three young children but they were obviously not as important as drug money, and at the end of the day, you reap what you sow. You do the crime, you do the time.
