Kelly Dobson, aged 31, of Avebury Boulevard, Milton Keynes pleaded guilty earlier this week to possession with intent to supply of class A drugs (heroin) at Aylesbury Crown Court.

Munir El-Qawas, aged 61, also of Avebury Boulevard, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply of class A drugs (cocaine).

On the same day at the same court Kelly Dobson was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment. El-Qawas remains in custody and will be sentenced at the same court on 21 November.

They were charged and arrested on September 6, 2016 following two Misuse of Drugs Act warrants executed on the same day, at two of El-Qawas’ addresses; his home address on Melton, Stantonbury and his temporary address located in Central Milton Keynes.

Both Dobson and El-Qawas were arrested from the temporary address due to a significant quantity of high purity cocaine and heroin being recovered. A large quantity of cash, electronic scales and other paraphernalia related to drug supply were also found.

“I am pleased that Dobson has received a significant custodial sentence and anticipate that El-Qawas will follow suit,” said investigating officer PC Steve Morgan-Russell.

“The fact that they have entered early guilty pleas at court goes to show that the evidence against them was overwhelming. The quantity and purity of the drugs recovered as a result of the warrants was a substantial find by the officers involved and demonstrates the continued efforts by Thames Valley Police in combatting the shattering effect of illegal drugs on our community,” he added.
