Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for drug supply in Windsor.
Timo Marecha, aged 23, of Wexham Road, Slough was sentenced to two years imprisonment, suspended for two years at Reading Crown Court on Friday (29/7).
He must also undertake 200 hours of unpaid work and 30 Rehabilitation Activity Requirement days, as well as be subject to a tagged curfew for four months.
Marecha pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to one count each of acquire/use/possess criminal property and possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class A, namely crack cocaine.
On 8 September 2020, Marecha was seen by officers in Vansittart Road, Windsor. When stopped and searched they found him to be in possession of 20 wraps of crack cocaine, a large quantity of cash, scales and two mobile phones.
On one of the phones were messages concerned with drug supply.
Marecha was subsequently arrested and charged on 16 March this year.
Investigating officer, PC Tom Hughes-Parry, based at Maidenhead police station, said: “I am pleased that Marecha has been convicted and sentenced for this crime.
“Drug supply can result in exploitation, money laundering and life-changing addictions – this will not be tolerated in our local communities and Thames Valley Police are committed to a zero tolerance approach to class A drug supply.”
