A man has been sentenced to prison for drugs offences following a Thames Valley Police investigation.
Abd Al Salam Yu, aged 22, of Prince of Wales Avenue, Reading, was sentenced to a total of two years and eight months’ imprisonment at Reading Crown Court on Thursday (29/4).
He pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to one count of being concerned in the supply of heroin, one count of being concerned in the supply of cocaine and one count of being concerned in the supply of cannabis.
The offences occurred on 17 February this year in Richfield Avenue.
Officers stopped Al Salam Yu and found him in possession of a class A drug. They then searched his property where a further quantity of class A and B drugs was found, as well as further evidence of drug supply.
Al Salam Yu was charged on 18 February.
Investigating officer, PC James Dunwell, based at Reading police station, said: “I am pleased that another person who has been involved in the supply of drugs has been removed from our community and will be spending time in prison.
“We absolutely will not tolerate this sort of offending, which is a blight on our communities and causes misery to so many people.
“We are committed to bringing offenders like this to justice and our Stronghold campaign focuses on fighting organised crime in partnership.”
