Man sentenced for drug supply offences

Following a joint investigation by the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU) and Thames Valley Police, a man has been sentenced for drug supply offences.

At Reading Crown Court on Friday (17/8), Armando Kaci, aged 24, of Regent Street, Reading was sentenced to four years and six months’ imprisonment.

He previously pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of class A drugs and being concerned in the supply of class B drugs. Other offences of possession of an offensive weapon in a private place, possession with the intent to supply cannabis and acquiring/using/possessing criminal property were also taken into account at sentencing.

In March this year, officers from SEROCU and Thames Valley Police searched an address in Regent Street, Reading.

Found and seized from the address was a large drone, material relating to drug supply, a number of mobile phones and £20,000 in cash.

Detective Sergeant Nicky Bartlett, of SEROCU, said: “The supply of drugs is not tolerated in our communities and Kaci has been jailed for his part in it.

“This case serves as a reflection of the success that joint working between forces and agencies can bring and also reflects the robust approach that all law enforcement agencies have towards serious and organised crime.

“You can help us by reporting any information you may have about drugs in your communities so that we can take action.

“Reports can be made by calling 101 or via your local force’s website.”
