A man has been sentenced to four-andâ€“a-half years in prison and a consecutive two year suspended sentence after he pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
Carl Skelton, aged 25, of Tubbs Closs, Grove, was charged on the 12 March and 29 May.
He appeared in Oxford Crown Court yesterday (19/6) and pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs
The sentencing relates to two incidents where warrants were conducted by police at a property in Blenheim Gardens, Grove on 25 January and at Tubbs Close, Grove on 29 May.
During both warrants police found large quantities of cocaine in the properties.
LPA Commander, Supt Andy Boyd said: â€œThis is an excellent result and a great deal of work has been done by officers to get this outcome.
â€œSkelton was twice found to be in possession with intent to supply class A drugs, and despite being charged for the first offence, he went on to offend for a second time.
â€œThis long sentence should act as a reminder to potential offenders that we have zero tolerance approach to drugs offences and those who do offend will be dealt with robustly.â€
