Akintomiwa Oseni, 21, of Sittingbourne, Kent, was sentenced on Tuesday at Luton Crown Court after being found guilty of two counts of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

The court ordered that Oseni be sentenced to four years and six months for each count, to run concurrently.

In December 2017, officers were called to an address in Dunstable Road, Luton, in response to a report of an assault. They discovered Oseni at the address, with 42 wraps of cocaine and 20 wraps of heroin.

Detective Constable Hasan Balic, investigating, said: “Oseni has been given a custodial sentence, and will now spend time behind bars.

“Drugs cause extreme harm in our communities, and we will take action against those who intend to supply them to others. I hope it also demonstrates to others that crime doesn’t pay.”
