Eastbourne Man Jailed For Dealing Heroin

A drug dealer who sold heroin to vulnerable users in Eastbourne has been jailed.

Between September 2021 and February 2022, Jordan Catt supplied the drug using the "CJ" telephone line. Other "burner" phones were found at his address in Pevensey Road, Eastbourne on February 10 when he was arrested.

He'd been sending bulk marketing messages to his contacts as well as making personal calls from the phones.

The unemployed 27-year-old pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of a class A drug (heroin) and was sentenced to six years in prison.

Following the case Detective Constable Glen Saunders said:

“We are pleased with the outcome of this case. Through our join work to investigate Catt, we have disrupted the supply of class A drugs in Eastbourne.

“Catt was dealing heroin over a considerable period, and was supplying to vulnerable users in the town.

“This outcome demonstrates our determination to catch offenders dealing drugs which cause so much harm to our communities.

"Anyone who has concerns about drug dealing, anti-social behaviour and crime in their community should report it to us online or call 101."
