Aly-AndersonONE of Sheffield’s major drug dealers who ran a crack and heroin den which made him a quarter of a million pounds a year has had his jail term cut.

Aly Anderson, aged 54, ran a ‘fortified drugs supermarket’ selling Class A drugs on Swanbourne Road, Sheffield Lane Top.

His 24-hour operation came to light after the death of Damian Taff, 29, who was stabbed to death outside in 2010.

Mr Taff, a dad-of-three from Grimesthorpe, was knifed through the heart in revenge for robbing another customer after visiting the den for a fix. His killer, Benjamin Grant, then 31, of Shiregreen, was jailed for 27 years.

Anderson, who ran the den, was in Spain at the time of Mr Taff’s murder, but officers arrested him when he returned to Sheffield a week later. He was jailed for 20 years after being convicted of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.
