Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been jailed for drug offences and possession of a bladed article.

Mikhail Andrews, aged 26, of Gurnell Grove, London, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, heroin and cocaine, and one count of possession of a bladed article at Aylesbury Crown Court on Tuesday (25/6).

He was sentenced to three years and eight months’ imprisonment.

The charges relate to an incident at 2:15pm on 11 April in Station Road, Taplow, when a stop and search was completed on a vehicle.

Andrews was found to be in possession of a knife and a quantity of class A drugs. He was charged the next day, 12 April.

Investigating officer PC Tom Hughes-Parry, of the Problem Solving Team at Maidenhead, said: “This sentence should send a message to anyone who deals drugs or carries knives within our communities.

“Thames Valley Police will not tolerate drug dealing or knives on our streets, and officers will always work hard to bring offenders to the courts and face justice.

“We would always encourage anyone who is aware of any drug dealing within our communities to come forward and report it.
