Man living luxurious lifestyle jailed for fraud and Class A drugs charges

A 37-year-old man, living an extravagant lifestyle – renting properties in Burton Waters and Navenby, as well as renting prestige cars including a BMW M4 – has been jailed for a variety of offences.

Jamie Dyer has been handed a six-year sentence at Lincoln Crown Court, after pleading guilty to offences including the supply of Cocaine, possession of criminal property and possession of weapons, money laundering, and numerous fraud offences that took place between 2011 and 2016.

A search of Dyer’s property revealed he was in possession of two high powered vehicles, obtained by fraud and deception, and he was also in possession of boxes of controlled class A and B drugs, a large amount of cutting agents, three stun guns, and mobile phones. He was charged with supply of Class A and B drugs, possession of weapons, money laundering and numerous fraud offences.

DC Cath Bolland, Investigating Officer, said: “We found out very quickly that Dyer was the controlling influence in a scheme to launder money earned through illegal activities, including the supply of Class A and B drugs.

“Dyer was able to fraudulently lease high powered, prestige motor vehicles for many years which were funded by his criminal enterprise. To facilitate this he had access to bank accounts that were fraudulently set up in the names of close family members.”

“His property was searched, and inside we found substantial evidence of his criminal activities, including class A and B drugs, and three stun guns. This was a complex investigation, where the offender got away with living a life of luxury made from illegal activities for many years, and needed to be put before the courts.”
