Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man from Reading has been jailed for the possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
Kieran Campbell, aged 32, of Bamburgh Close, was sentenced to four and a half years in prison at Reading Crown Court on Monday (12/9).
He pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class A, namely crack cocaine and heroin.
On 27 April, officers executed a warrant at Campbell’s home address.
Officers seized 195 wraps of heroin, 68 wraps of crack cocaine and 131g of uncut crack cocaine, with a total estimated value of £19,000.
They also seized phones containing messages linked to drugs supply, scales, packaging and a large quantity of cash.
Officers arrested Campbell and he was charged the next day.
