A 51-year-old man has been convicted of drugs offences in Milton Keynes.

On Friday, Ian Cupid, of Enders Court, Medbourne, was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment.

He pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs of class A - heroin and cocaine.

Cupid received a sentence of 48 months’ imprisonment for each count, to run concurrently.

At around 11.30am on 14 June 2016 Cupid was stopped in a vehicle with a 15-year-old boy. The boy was found to be in possession of 84 wraps of cocaine and heroin and was arrested and subsequently convicted of drugs supply offences.

When Cupid’s phone was investigated, messages showed he was also involved in the supply of drugs.

Cupid was charged in connection with the offences on September 18, 2016.

“This is a very substantial sentence and goes a long way to show that Thames Valley Police, the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts are doing as much as possible to stop this type of offending in the area,” said investigating officer PC Steven King,

“Cupid was driving a young boy around Milton Keynes in order to supply class A drugs to vulnerable members of the public and this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.”
