Jail: Craig Dwyer

Craig Dwyer was convicted and sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

On Thursday, January 26, Dwyer was stopped by Roads Policing Units in Milton Keynes city centre and when they conducted a search of his vehicle, Class A drugs were found in the rear offside brake compartment and a large amount of cash was recovered from the boot.

Investigating officer detective constable Mark Burgess said: “I welcome the sentence that Dwyer has received and hope that he uses this time to reflect on his actions.

“Drugs destroy lives, families and communities. I hope this sends a warning to anyone who is in possession of or who deals drugs in Milton Keynes that Thames Valley Police will robustly investigate such offences, make arrests and bring defendants before the courts.

“I would urge residents who see or hear anything unusual in their neighbourhoods which leads them to suspect drugs are being misused or dealt to contact Thames Valley Police via our non-emergency enquiry centre on 101.”
