Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
This message is dated Friday 31st July 2020 for Maidenhead.
Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for drug offences in Maidenhead.
Flook Sawangsaiphan, aged 19, of Boveney Lock, Dorney was sentenced at Reading Crown Court on Thursday 23 July.
Sawangsaiphan was sentenced to two years and six months’ imprisonment after pleading guilty to a count each of possession with intent to supply (Class A), possession with intent to supply (Class B), possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, acquiring criminal property, and obstructing the police.
The convictions are in connection with an incident on Sunday 19 April in North Town Road, Maidenhead. Sawangsaiphan was stopped and detained following reports of drug dealing in the area and obstructed a search before trying to escape. When he was searched, Class A and Class B drugs, mobile phones, cash and a baton-style weapon were seized. He was charged on Monday 20 April.
Investigating officer PC Tom Hughes-Parry, of the Maidenhead Problem Solving Team, said: “Sawangsaiphan was involved in drug supply in Maidenhead and the Royal Borough and was armed with a weapon to enforce his criminality. He also tried everything he could to avoid arrest and escape justice. I hope that Sawangsaiphan thinks about his actions while in prison and that this deters others from engaging in this activity.
“Through our True Costs campaign we will continue to highlight the real impact that drug offences have on the most vulnerable in our communities.
“Drug dealing will never be tolerated and we remain committed to ensuring that offenders such as Sawangsaiphan are brought to justice.”
