Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for drug offences in Bletchley.
Benit Tshikuna, aged 26, of Rydal Way, Bletchley was sentenced yesterday (25/10) to three years and nine months’ imprisonment at Aylesbury Crown Court.
At the same hearing he pleaded guilty to one count each of being concerned in the supply of a class A drug – namely cocaine and being concerned in the supply of a class A drug – namely heroin.
On 13 July this year, a warrant was carried out at an address in Bletchley. Officers found a quantity of cocaine, heroin and over £1000 in cash. Tshikuna was arrested nearby and subsequently released under investigation.
Then on 29 September this year, another warrant was carried out at the same address in Bletchley. Tshikuna was inside and threw a phone out of the window. The phone was found to have a large number of messages arranging and facilitating the sale of drugs.
He was charged on 30 September.
