Kabello Monyebudi, 23, of St Johns Road, Redhill, and Harry Tickner, 22, from Caterham were each sentenced to two and a half years after being found guilty of possessing cocaine with intent to supply.

Tickner also pled guilty to possessing cannabis with intent to supply and was given a 12 month sentence to be served concurrently.

The pair were arrested on 23rd April 2017 in Oxted after their car was stopped in the evening by police on patrol and subsequently searched. A crisp packet containing multiple wraps of cannabis was discovered inside the vehicle and both men were arrested.

The pair were put into the back of a police van for transport to custody and have then attempted to discard 14 wraps of cocaine which had been concealed in their underwear.

Following an investigation it was proven both Monyebudi and Tickner were working together to supply the cocaine within the Surrey area.

PC Munday from the proactive team said: “This is another success for police in tackling the issue of drugs supply in our communities. Our message is simple - if you have anything to do with the supply of drugs you are not welcome in Surrey - we will find you, arrest you and put you before the courts.”
