Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for drug offences in Milton Keynes.
Lewis Gold, aged 41, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply a controlled class A drug – namely crack cocaine and heroin, and one count each of possession of a controlled class A drug – namely crack cocaine and possession of a controlled class B drug – namely cannabis.
He was sentenced to five years and seven months in prison at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday (24/3).
On 15 January earlier this year, officers attended an address in Tinkers Bridge, Milton Keynes, after seeing a vehicle linked to drug supply at the property.
Gold made attempts to evade the address and was detained by officers.
Packages were located both on the ground and in the pockets of Gold that were later identified as crack cocaine, heroin and cannabis.
The seized drugs were valued at around £3,670.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Steven King based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “Lewis Gold was in possession of 15.19 grams of crack cocaine and 14.3 grams of heroin that he intended to supply within Milton Keynes.
“He has plead guilty and this is due to the hard work and dedication of response officers and the Stronghold team who are committed to stamping out this type of activity within the Thames Valley area.
