Two men from the Isle of Dogs have been sentenced at Snaresbrook Crown Court for drug related offences.

Conor Armstrong, 26, of Byng Street, and Steven Brissett, 20, of Tiller Road, were sentenced on Thursday following an investigation by Tower Hamlets Police.

Armstrong was jailed for three years and two months after pleading guilty to dangerous driving, assault and being involved in the supply of cannabis.

Brissett, who was also charged with involvement in the supply of cannabis, was handed a suspended sentence of 16 months after entering a guilty plea.

Both men were arrested in 2017 after police investigations linked them both to drug dealing in the area. Brissett was arrested at his home where police seized half a kilogram of cannabis and over £6,000 in cash.

The court heard how Armstrong had been supplying Brissett with large amounts of cannabis, and £25,000 in cash was found at an address linked to him in Kent.

PC Jon Privett of Tower Hamlets CID said: “An investigation into a violent offender uncovered a network of drug supply.

“Both offenders have now been convicted and we hope this reduces the level of drug fuelled violence on the streets of Tower Hamlets.”
