A man from Milton Keynes has been handed a suspended sentence after police found 5965 grams of cannabis alongside records of drug deals at his Buckinghamshire home.

Kie Lalande, 29, pleaded guilty to possession of the drug with intent to supply at Aylesbury Crown Court on Tuesday, June 4.

He was sentenced to 14 months in jail, suspended for two years, 250 hours of unpaid work and 20 days of mandated rehabilitation activity.

A suspended sentence means Lalande won’t be jailed if he doesn’t commit any more offences and complies with the court requirements.

The 29-year-old was found to be in possession of 5965g of cannabis and a quantity of cash in a police search on January 18.

Further drugs, alongside several mobile phones and a notebook containing the names and amounts of past transactions were also found at his home address.

The drugs, mobile phones and other paraphernalia were confiscated and destroyed.

Investigating officer Chloe Ross, based at Milton Keynes Police Station, said: “Drug supply in Milton Keynes is taken seriously, we will do all that we can to pursue, arrest and convict the persons involved.

“They target the vulnerable members of the community and we will stop at nothing to ensure their criminality is stopped.
