A man was sentenced to two-and-a-half-year’s imprisonment on August 1 for drugs offences in Banbury.
Brian Loggoh-Robertson, aged 24, of Kennedy House, Banbury, was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a class A drug on March 17 this year. He was then charged with the offence on June 6.
Robertson pleaded guilty to the charge against him at Oxford Crown Court.
The sentence relates to an incident on March 16 at 11.45pm, when officers attended a noise complaint at an address and Robertson gave false details to the officers, and was arrested.
Whilst in custody 14 wraps of cocaine were discovered in his possession.
PC Bryn Smith of Banbury CID said: “The sole purpose of this investigation was to reduce the demand for drugs in the Banbury area and the harm caused by drug-related crimes. We will continue to proactively target anyone involved in drug supply.
“This sentence should act as reminder that we have a zero tolerance approach to drugs offences and drug supply in Banbury will not be tolerated. Those who do offend will be charged and sent to court.”
