A Torquay man has been sentenced to three years and nine months in prison after cocaine and cash was found in his kitchen cupboard.
Alex Frank Maund, 24, was arrested in November 2018 after being detained on the street shortly after leaving his address in Torquay.
A search found 138 grams of cocaine along with dealer’s lists, scales and £1,000 in cash in the kitchen cupboard.
Maund, pleaded guilty at Exeter Crown Court yesterday, Thursday 21st November to the possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.
A spokesperson from the South Devon Proactive Policing Team said: “The sentence comes following a lengthy and detailed investigation by officers on the South Devon Proactive Policing Team, which aimed to disrupt the supply of Class A drugs across the Torbay area.
“Maund ran a major drugs operation in Torbay which sought to control the cocaine market across Torquay, thereby exploiting the vulnerabilities of persons residing within this local community.
“138 grams of cocaine with a potential street value of over £13,000 was seized and taken off the streets.
“Today’s sentence goes to show that we will not give up on removing drugs and illicit cash from the streets of our local communities and making them a safer place to live.”
