A 46-year-old man from Milton Keynes has been sentenced to three years and four months in jail for drugs offences.

Andrew Warnecke, from Jennings, Statonbury, was sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday (12/05), having previously been convicted at the same court on April 24th after pleading guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply heroin and one count of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine.

On September 26th 2016, Warnecke was seen driving erratically down Monks Way, near Bancroft. Following a brief pursuit by officers, he was stopped and asked to get out of his car.

While officers were checking his driving licence and insurance details, wraps of drugs fell out of his trouser legs. The substances were later confirmed to be heroin and crack cocaine.

He was arrested and taken into custody. Following a search, further wraps of heroin and crack cocaine were found in his underwear. Warnecke was also in possession of two mobile phones, both of which contained messages relating to the supply of drugs.

Investigating officer DC Alana Heaver said, “I welcome the sentence which Warnecke has received and I hope that he uses the time which he will spend in prison to reflect on his actions

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