Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been jailed for drug offences in Reading.
Grafton Vaughan, aged 50, of Berkeley Avenue, Reading, was sentenced to seven years in prison at Reading Crown Court on Thursday (9/11).
He was found guilty by unanimous jury verdict of one count of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class A, namely crack cocaine at the same hearing.
At around 11.45am on 10 May this year, officers saw Vaughan interacting with suspected class A drug users on Berkeley Avenue.
Vaughan was seen discarding 16 wraps of crack cocaine, and £125 in cash was recovered.
Officers then searched Vaughan’s home address and found digital scales with traces of cocaine as well as cling film and cigarette papers.
Vaughan was charged the following day (11/5).
Investigating officer Detective Constable Aimee Usher, based at Reading police station, said: “We are committed to proactively and robustly targeting and prosecuting drug-dealers.
“Our activity will be both visible and covert aimed at disrupting and pursuing offenders involved in the supply of illegal drugs.
“The information from the public around illegal drug supply in Reading plays an important role in developing intelligence into a proactive investigation.
“If you have any information that can help us, we would encourage you to report it to us by calling 101 or through the online reporting on our website.
“You can also provide information anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by ringing 0800 555 111 or via its website.”
