Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
ONLY ONE CRIME OF CRIMINAL DAMAGE TO REPORT OVER THE WEEKEND.
NO CARS BROKEN INTO
Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, three men have been jailed for drugs offences.
Thomas Cummings, aged 28, Reece Cummings, aged 25 and Richard Haywood, aged 54, all of no fixed abode were jailed at Reading Crown Court on Friday 24 July.
Thomas Cummings was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment, while Reece Cummings and Haywood were jailed for 27 months each.
They all pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs, namely cocaine and heroin.
The convictions relate to an incident at 1.30pm on 9 January 2020, following a vehicle stop by officers in Clarence Road in Windsor. They were found to be in possession of class A drugs, cash and phones.
All three were arrested on the same day and then charged on the next day, 10 January.
Investigating officer, PC Tom Hughes-Parry, of the Problem Solving Team in Maidenhead, said: “Richard Haywood is the father of Reece and Thomas Cummings who were a criminal family involved in distributing Class A drugs into Windsor and spreading misery into the local area.
“This was an excellent stop by officers, and the three of them were caught red handed dealing drugs to vulnerable adults in Windsor – this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated in Windsor and I am glad they will not be able to cause any more issues.
“Through our Stronghold campaign Thames Valley Police will continue to work in partnership to tackle serious organised crime and to stop those who seek to exploit vulnerable people for their own means.”

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
The lockdown has resulted in many neighbourhoods drawing closer together in supporting local residents with needs, and in neighbours spending a lot more time talking to each other over fences or across the road. This has improved community spirit to no end, and a great way to keep this spirit alive is for residents to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or start up a new scheme if there is not already one covering their respective street.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about looking out the window and being alert for any crime in the neighbourhood, it is much more than that. It serves as a valuable resource for crime prevention, in supporting the Police with things such as local home security surveys, installing crime prevention aids in homes for the vulnerable and elderly especially, helping those vulnerable and elderly residents with any other needs, and in drawing residents together in supporting one another.
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents and serves as a means to highlight local issues relating to crime and residents in need. New NHW schemes are continuously being set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
To search for your nearest NHW scheme, or to set up a new scheme, visit www.ourwatch.org.uk and enter your postcode.
For any questions relating to Neighbourhood Watch please contact the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association at firstname.lastname@example.org
