A DRUGS supplier has been sentenced at Reading Crown Court for possessing crack cocaine and colliding his vehicle into a parked car.

Jay Wylde of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and one count of dangerous driving.

On November 28 at around 1.45pm, Police officers noticed a man exchanging items in a vehicle in Great Knollys Street, Reading.

Officers attempted to stop the car being driven by Wylde.

The 35-year-old failed to stop and collided with a parked vehicle.

He then ran away on foot before being caught by officers and was then arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs.

A search of the vehicle was carried out and police officers discovered numerous amounts of wraps of Class A drugs.

At a hearing yesterday (January 28), Wylde admitted to both charges and was given a consecutive sentence of three years imprisonment for drugs supply and four months for dangerous driving.

Police constable Katie Poole of the Reading Stronghold team said: "Tackling organised drug dealing remains a top priority for Thames Valley Police.

"This conviction and sentence shows that criminal behaviour will not be tolerated in our communities.

"We are committed to protecting the most vulnerable people in our communities."
