A drug dealer has been jailed after police found £14k worth of cocaine in his home.

Luke Jones, aged 30, of Radworthy, Furzton, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class A, namely cocaine, at Aylesbury Crown Court on February 16.

On 18 August, 2023, police carried out a section 23 drugs warrant at his home address.

Officers found a large amount of cocaine with a street value of £14,300.

Jones was then wanted for evading the police as he was not at home during the warrant.

Officers managed to find Jones and a further amount of class A drugs in his possession. Jones was arrested and charged on September 20 last year.

Investigating officer PC Thomas Watt, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “Luke Jones was caught with a substantial amount of drugs in his possession and it was clear he was looking to profit from the sale of class A.

“This sentence sends a message to people involved in the supply of drugs that drug-dealing will not be tolerated in Milton Keynes and we will be robust in our response.

“We will continue to pursue this criminal activity and look to protect vulnerable people members of the community.

“We will proactively and robustly target and prosecute offenders. Our activity will be both visible and covert aimed at disrupting and pursuing offenders involved in the supply of drugs.

“Anyone with information about drug dealing can contact us by calling 101 or by making a report online.

“If you do not wish to speak to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and they will take your information 100% anonymously.”

In the same hearing, Jones was sentenced to three years and nine months’ imprisonment, ordered forfeiture and destruction of the drugs, phones and paraphernalia and ordered to pay a statutory surcharge.

Jones was also ordered to forfeit £479.60 under the Misuse of Drugs Act, to be donated to local charities.
