A man has been jailed for more than three years after detectives found a knife and Class A drugs in his car during a stop-and-search in Taplow.

Mikhail Andrews, 26, of Gurnell Grove, London, was stopped by police on April 11 this year in Station Road and charged the next day.

He 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 this week.

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.”
