Main article content
A man was sentenced to two years in prison at Guildford Crown Court on Wednesday (7 September) after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
William McKeague, 22, from Hazel Avenue, Guildford, was sentenced after a vehicle stop in 2020 found him to be in possession of a large amount of cash, burner phones and cocaine.
Whilst on patrol, police stopped the vehicle along Willow Way, Guildford and searched McKeague and his passenger under S23 misuse of drugs act. Among McKeague’s possessions were two burner phones, 10 small bags of cocaine and £2265 in cash, which has been forfeited as part of his sentence.
After a full investigation, the passenger had no further action taken against him and McKeague was charged.
PC David Oliver, who investigated the case, said “This case demonstrates the excellent, proactive police work which we carry out on a daily basis, leading to less drug dealers on the streets of Surrey and a better environment for the local community, who should not have to put up with the blight that is drug dealing.”
