Seven people have been imprisoned for their involvement in a conspiracy to supply cocaine across the Slough, Maidenhead and Windsor areas.

They were led by Louis Bifolco, 24, of Sutton Avenue, Slough.

He employed others to run his business and their roles included running drugs, collecting drugs and money, storing the drugs and preparing them for sale.

In July 2017 officers carried out warrants in Maidenhead and Burnham and a number of people were arrested.

Over the course of the investigation officers seized eight kilogrammes of cocaine and around £100,000 worth of cash. Seven people, including Bifolco, were sentenced at Reading Crown Court today.

Bifolco received ten years’ and eight months’ imprisonment. Alex York, 24, of Upcroft, Windsor, was sentenced to six years’ imprisonment.

Luke Collins, 25, of Courtlands in Maidenhead, was sentenced to eight years, Jamie Pownall, 25, of Bowry Drive, Wraysbury to six.

Paula Marie Robinson, aged 35, of Lent Green Lane, Burnham, was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment.

Daniel Stocke, aged 44, of no fixed abode, was sentenced to five years.

They had all pleaded guilty to count of conspiracy to supply cocaine and were sentenced at Reading Crown Court.

Peter Simonetti, 25, of Moorstown Court, Slough was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment suspended for two years.

He had pleaded guilty to one count of allowing his premises to be used in the supply of cocaine.

The conspiracy took place between February 2017 and July 2017.
