A 26-year-old drug dealer has been handed a five-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to a number of offences.
Luke Jason Alexis, previously of Talbot Road, Wellingborough, was stopped three times in the space of 10 months with large quantities of Class A drugs in his possession.
The first offence happened on October 26, 2021, when he was located inside an address in Carrington Road, Kettering, with 188 wraps of cocaine and heroin.
Six months later on April 9 this year, he was arrested inside an address in Alexandra Street, Kettering, with 132 wraps of the Class A drugs.
And finally, on August 15 this year, he was stopped in Harrowden Road, Wellingborough, in a Volkswagen Scirocco with 31 wraps of Class A drugs and a significant quantity of cash.
He was subsequently arrested and a review of his mobile phone devices also evidenced that he was involved in the supply of cannabis.
Alexis was later charged with possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs, being concerned in the supply of Class B drugs and possession of criminal property.
On September 28, at Northampton Crown Court, he pleaded guilty to the offences, and at the same court on Friday, November 4, was sentenced to five years and three months in prison.
Lead Investigator – Detective Constable Lee Norton, said: “Luke Alexis was brought to justice through a real team effort across the Force with stops and arrests made by a number of teams including officers on response as well as those working on Op Revive.
“I am pleased that he now finds himself behind bars as it demonstrates a stark fact to others involved in the supply of drugs that this glamorous lifestyle you have had sold to you is a lie.
“Drugs are a real scourge in our society and often the root cause of many crimes. That’s why it’s so important to take action against the dealers and I want to reassure the local community that we will continue working hard in order to do this.”
