A MAN originally from Greece caught with almost £1,500 worth of crack cocaine and heroin in Seaforth has been jailed for 32 months. Plain clothes police officers spotted Thanos Karayannis running up an alleyway in the Maple Close area and when he came back he was stopped and arrested. When searched he was found to have a tin in his pocket containing 33 wraps of cocaine and 39 wraps of heroin. His mobile phone was examined and a number of texts were found relating to drug dealing, said Derek Jones, prosecuting. Police went to his home and a search revealed a further 53 £10 wraps of cocaine and 16 of heroin. Karayannis, of Pope Street, Bootle, pleaded guilty to two charges involving possessing the drugs with intent to supply. Sentencing him on Wednesday, May 8, Judge Andrew Menary, QC, the Recorder of Liverpool, said his activities were “in stark contrast with what would appear to be the real Thanos Karayannis. “You are plainly someone who in other circumstances would make different choices and would not have found yourself in the crown crown facing a significant prison term.” He added that the defendant had “plainly let himself and his family down.” Liverpool Crown Court heard that Karakyannis had moved to Scandanavia from his homeland but
after 15 years moved to Liverpool and studied for a Masters degree in product design. He did not finish that course and took various jobs to support his partner and their child. Paul Beckler, defending, said that the defendant, who had started smoking heroin, had been desperate for money. He was very concerned for his partner and their child as the family had been subjected to hate crime and now he was going into prison and leaving them alone.
