Hysenukaj was sentenced to a total of three years and nine months’ imprisonment.

Mavrogiorgou will be sentenced at a later date.

On 11 January, 2019, officers were called to a report of a disturbance at an address in Wheatley Close, Milton Keynes.

They entered the property and found 241 grams of cannabis along with £12,000 and an ID card beginning to Hysenukaj. His fingerprints were also found at the scene.

On 17 January, Hysenukaj was seen in the North 12th Street area. He attempted to run away from police officers but was detained shortly afterwards.

Offices entered his property and found three kilograms of cannabis and 36 wraps of cocaine outside his house. They also found about £9,000 in cash.

Hysenukaj and Mavrogiorgou were both charged on 18 July.

Investigating officer PC Gavin Ramdyal, based at Milton Keynes police station, said: “These two offenders played a significant role in supplying drugs in Milton Keynes with no regard for the effect their crimes have had on the community.

“Their convictions should send a clear message to those supplying drugs that it will not be tolerated and that they will be brought to justice for their actions.
