A drug dealer convicted of dealing Class A drugs is facing eviction after Wolverhampton Homes was granted a possession order against him.

Possession proceedings began in March 2009 and the order was granted in a hearing at Walsall County Court on Friday (23 April, 2010).

David Lothian, 44, of Davenport Road, Moathouse Estate, Wednesfield, now has two months to vacate the property.

Mr Lothian’s home was raided by police in February 2009 following intelligence reports of drug dealing. The raid uncovered heroin, crack cocaine and cocaine ready to sell.

Mr Lothian was given a prison sentence of two years, but was released for good behaviour after serving less than a year.

Mark Henderson, Director of Housing, said: “In partnership with the police, we will do everything in our power to stop drug dealing, which has a devastating affect on people’s lives.”

“Our tenants and leaseholders deserve to live in communities that are not riddled with crime or fear and we will always ask the court to impose the ultimate sanction on anyone engaging in criminal activities.”
