A man has been jailed for five years and eleven months after being convicted for possession with intent to supply heroin and cocaine in Taplow.

Officers carried out a stop and search on twenty-three-year-old Keithlyn Fleming’s vehicle on April 11, 2019.

They found 100 wraps of class A drugs worth around £2000 in cash. He was arrested at the scene and later charged on September 26 2019.

Fleming, of Bideford Spur, Slough, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply heroin and one count of possession with intent to supply cocaine.

He was sentenced to three years and one month for the possession offences but was also convicted of drug dealing offences in Swindon and was sentenced at the same hearing to a further two years' and ten months' imprisonment to run consecutively.

Investigating officer, PC Tom Hughes-Parry of the problem solving team based at Maidenhead police station, said: "This was a stop search targeting a county line dealer who was dealing in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead but also as far away as Swindon.

"Fleming has also been convicted of dealing drugs in Swindon in August 2019 after a joint operation between Thames Valley Police and Wiltshire Constabulary.

"Drug dealing and county lines will not be tolerated and I hope his conviction and sentence of five years and 11 months' acts a deterrent to others.

"The force is running the True Cost campaign which highlights the misery and terrible impacts drugs and drug supply have on communities and vulnerable people, and is asking people to think about the impact of buying recreational drugs can have on others.

"Also through Stronghold, Thames Valley Police is committed to working in partnership to tackle serious organised crime such as county lines drug dealing.

"We continue to need the support of the public in this and we would ask them to please report any information they have about drug dealing so we can build intelligence about the perpetrators and bring them to justice."
