20 September 2017, 12:54
Raymond Amoah had 23 wraps of crack cocaine and 70 wraps of heroin on him
25-year-old Amoah of Norbury Crescent, Croydon has been jailed for three years and six months.
He pleaded guilty and was sentenced at Reading Crown Court on the 13th of September for one count of possession with intent to supply cocaine for which he was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment and possession with intent to supply heroin for which he was sentenced to three years, to run concurrently.
On 9 September 2016 at 12:53pm officers in Newbury were on patrol and conducted a drug search on a vehicle in Hutton Close.
Following this search Amoah was taken to Newbury custody for an enhanced search and found in possession of 23 wraps of crack cocaine and 70 wraps of heroin concealed about his person.
Police Constable Chris Eaton, investigating said: “The sentence is a reflection of the seriousness of the offence. Heroin and crack cocaine bring misery to those who you use them and to the families of addicts.
“In addition crime is created as a result of drug addiction. This is another example of how the courts are taking these offences seriously. The London county lines issue is a national one and Thames Valley Police, particularly in West Berkshire, is committed to apprehending and prosecuting those responsible to bring about a safer community.”
