Drugs Offence Sentences

Twenty six people have been jailed for drugs offences after a series of raids across Milton Keynes.

Thames Valley Police carried out raids in the new city on 6 and 12 December 2012 as part of an investigation into the supply of heroin and crack cocaine in Milton Keynes.

Twenty six people were sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 January 2013.  Twenty four were sent to prison, with the longest sentence just over four and a half years.

Another person received a suspended prison sentence, meaning they will stay out of jail provided they stay out of trouble.  A 17 year old boy was given a two-year detention training order.

Two further people were handed prison sentences on Friday 1 February 2013.

Det Insp Suzette Allcorn, of Milton Keynes CID, said: "I am pleased with the sentences given out this week. All these defendants were arrested as part of a major operation targeting those who supply class A drugs in Milton Keynes.

"The operation was the result of months of investigative work and careful planning, involving a dedicated team of officers. The strike phase of the operation saw warrants being executed at addresses across Milton Keynes, London and Northampton.

"Following two early morning raids in December, a total of 51 people were arrested and weapons, large quantities of drugs and money were recovered.  

"Drugs cause untold misery, ruin lives and they fuel other crimes such as burglary and theft. Bringing to justice those who deal and use drugs is a priority for us and the conviction of these 26 people will significantly dent the activities and ambitions of those involved."

Det Supt Barry Halliday, the Milton Keynes Local Police Area Commander, said: “Drugs are a problem that the Thames Valley Police take very seriously. The impact of drug use and drug dealing has wide-reaching implications on communities because drug users have to find ways to fund their habits and as a consequence often commit burglaries, robberies and thefts. It is these types of operations which have a direct impact on reducing such crimes and ensuring those who cause misery to others find themselves serving long sentences in prison.

“I welcome the sentences handed down by the court this week. These sentences highlight the outcome for anyone who becomes involved in the trade of drugs and other associated criminal activity.”
