Two drug dealers from Thornton Heath have been jailed for over four years after they were caught with £11,000 in drugs and over £7,000 worth of drugs. 

Ruddy Ewengere, 33, and Tre Fraser, 30, both of Windsor Road, both pleaded guilty to possessing and being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine and heroin. 

On September 25 last year Met Police officers raided their property on Windsor Road and found Ewengue inside. 

They also found over £11,000 in cash, heroin and crack cocaine of a street value of over £5,000 and a set of scales and a razor blade was recovered. 

On the same day Thames Valley police officers found Fraser inside a property on Oxford Street in Reading. 

A search of the property revealed 171 wraps of crack cocaine and 64 wraps of heroin with a combined street value of around £2,390. 

Last Monday (March 25) the pair were sentenced to four years and six months in prison each by a judge at Reading Crown Court. 

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Jon Nicholls, based at Reading police station, said: “Ruddy Ewengue and Tre Fraser were caught with a high value of drugs and cash in their possession. 

“This sentence sends a message to people involved in the supply of drugs that drug-dealing will not be tolerated in Reading and we will be proactive in our response. 

“We will continue to pursue this criminal activity and look to protect vulnerable people members of the community. 

“The information from the public around the drug supply offences in Reading plays an important role in developing intelligence into a proactive investigation. 

“Anyone with information about drug dealing can contact us by calling 101 or by making a report online. 

“If you do not wish to speak to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and they will take your information 100% anonymously.”
