Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

A man has been jailed for a total of three years and nine months for drug supply offences and possession of acid.

Daniel Andrew Mills, 24 and of Poole Road in Bournemouth, was sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court on Monday 28 January 2019 after pleading guilty at a previous hearing to possession with intent to supply cocaine, being concerned in the supply of cocaine and possession of an offensive weapon – sulphuric acid. He was also issued with life-long restraining orders preventing him from having any contact with the witnesses involved in the case. 

At around 4pm on Wednesday 13 September 2017 officers carried out a stop check on an Audi car at County Gates on Poole Road in Bournemouth after it was seen being driven erratically. Four men were inside the vehicle and they all refused to get out of the car and were seen attempting to hide items.

Mills was driving the vehicle and following a search a bottle of suspected corrosive liquid was found in the side compartment of the driver’s door. When an officer opened the bottle and smelt it, it immediately started burning his nose. He sustained burns to his nose as a result.

Mills was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon. While in custody he was searched and a small wrap of cocaine was found in his left sock, which he said was for personal use. A bag was found in the car which contained multiple wraps of cocaine and messages were also located on his mobile phone in relation to setting up drug deals.

Detective Constable Honor McAdam, of Bournemouth CID, said: “I hope the sentence issued will send out a very strong message that Dorset Police does not tolerate anyone carrying corrosive substances such as acid. This is a highly dangerous weapon to be carrying and can cause devastating and permanent injuries if used.

“It also reminds those dealing and using drugs that you will be dealt with robustly by the court."
