A man has been jailed for more than two years for drug crimes in Maidenhead.

Kane Hollingworth, 20, of Dewsbury Road, Luton, was arrested on October 31 last year after being seen in Maidenhead town centre by two PCSOs.

He was found to be in possession of a large quantity of cash and a hotel key.

When officers went to the hotel, they found Hollingworth had travelled from Bedfordshire to Maidenhead to deal drugs.

In the room were a number of items to prepare and package Class A drugs.

He was charged on the following day, on November 1.

Hollingworth pleaded guilty to one count each of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug, namely heroin, and acquiring/using/possessing criminal property, in a hearing at Reading Crown Court last Thursday (February 11).

He was sentenced to two years and two months behind bars.

Investigating officer, PC Luke Jenkins, based at Maidenhead police station, said: “Due to the great work of PCSO Miller and PCSO Ahmed, Hollingworth has been prevented from being able to continue to distribute drugs in Maidenhead.

“This case is an example of the zero tolerance approach that Thames Valley Police will take against those involved in county line dealing and I am pleased that Hollingworth will now serve time in prison for his actions.

“Further, I would like to iterate how much the community approach is vital in assisting us in combating crime.”
