A YOUNG man has been jailed after a police raid found a stash of M-Kat and drug paraphernalia at an address in Newbury.

George Morgan was arrested in March 2016 after Thames Valley Police swooped on an address in Westwood Road where they found the incriminating goods.

M-Kat, often called meow meow is a powerful stimulant which can cause nosebleeds and poor circulation.

The 20-year-old was already serving a suspended sentence dating from October 2015 for a similar offence.

Morgan, of Dickens Walk, Newbury, appeared at Reading Crown Court on Wednesday, August 2.

He admitted possession with intent to supply a class B drug. He was jailed for 16 months.

Police Constable Kelly Howard said: “Thames Valley Police is committed to our continued investigations of drug-related offences and we will always seek the prosecution of those involved in their supply.

"We need the community's help in catching those who deal drugs - so if you have any information please call the enquiry centre on 101."
