A Stony Stratford man has been sentenced to four years and seven months’ imprisonment for drugs offences, following an investigation by Thames Valley Police.

Matthew Nash, aged 21, of Jubilee Terrace was sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday.

He was sentenced to four years and six months for one count of possession with intent to supply heroin and one count of possession with intent to supply cocaine.

The charges related to an incident in Snowberry Close, Stacey Bushes on 29 February 2016.

Nash attempted to escape from a property that police were attending and jumped from a rear window to be met by police dog Diesel and his handler PC Cook who detained him.

A significant amount of heroin and cocaine was discovered on Nash’s person and in the nearby vicinity which he had discarded.

Nash was also sentenced to four years for a further count of possession with intent to supply heroin and one count of possession with intent to supply cocaine.

He was also sentenced to fourteen days for being in possession of a Class B drug.

Those two counts are in relation to an incident on June 14 in Ransoms Avenue, Conniburrow where Nash, who was on police bail, was arrested for possession of Class A drugs concealed within himself.

The sentences will run concurrently. The total sentence is four years and seven months as Nash was given a month’s sentence for the breach of a suspended sentence following a conviction in March this year for the possession of a bladed article and possession of Class B herbal cannabis.

“Drugs have a devastating impact on the lives of people in our communities and I am pleased that Nash has received a significant custodial sentence for the offences he committed,” said investigating officer, Det Con Mark Burgess.
