A 29-year-old man has been sentenced to jail after committing drug offences in Milton Keynes.

Kenneth Ifefo-Elambo, aged 29, of no fixed abode was sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on October 30th. He previously pleaded guilty at the same court on October 16th to one count of possession with intent to supply cocaine and to one count of possession with intent to supply heroin.

For each of these convictions, Ifefo-Elambo was given 45 month custodial sentences to run concurrently. He also pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis at his sentencing, but no further sentence was given for this offence.

Ifefo-Elambo was given an additional 18 months’ imprisonment for a previous suspended sentence for possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin, which he breached. This added up to a total of five years’ and three months.

The charges relates to the event of September 22nd, when officers attended a property on Towan Avenue. Officers arrested Ifefo-Elambo as he was wanted for failing to appear.

He resisted arrest and assaulted two officers. One officer received grazing to his face.

At Milton Keynes custody, a search revealed that Ifefo-Elambo was in possession of 49 wraps of heroin, 28 wraps of cocaine and seven grams of cannabis.

Ifefo-Elambo was charged with the drugs offences and the assault of two officers on September 22nd. The offences for assault were laid on file.

Investigating officer DC Steven King said, “This is a very good result and I hope goes to show the residents of Milton Keynes that Thames Valley Police and the Crown Prosecution Service are doing everything we can in order to stop the supply of controlled drugs, protect the vulnerable people that they harm and ensure that people think twice about supplying in this area.

“I would like to thank everyone who assisted in this case ensuring that we achieved the right outcome.

“Thames Valley Police are committed to tackling those who are thought to be dealing drugs as part of our ongoing campaign Stronghold which aims to work in partnership to tackle serious and organised crime.”
