A man and a woman from Wiltshire have been sentenced for drug offences following a police warrant.

On Friday, June 14, 41-year-old Michael Lonsdale, of Vine Court, Bulls Lane in Box, was sentenced at Swindon Crown Court to 22 months in prison, suspended for two years, for being involved in the supply of cocaine and heroin. 

Lonsdale was also ordered to carry our drug rehabilitation, carry out up to 20 days of rehabilitation activity and pay a surcharge of £156.

Becky Marlow, 42, also of Vine Court in Bulls Lane, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of cocaine and heroin at a hearing on Friday, May 3, and was sentenced to seven days in prison or to pay a £200 fine by November.

The sentences follow a drug warrant carried out by officers on June 8, 2022. 

During the incident, suspected drugs were reportedly thrown out of the window, drug dealing equipment like scales were seized from inside the property, and the two occupants were arrested.

Additionally, weapons like nun-chucks and air guns were seized and police believe attempts were made to flush drugs down the sink in the kitchen.

DC Kev Golledge said: "This was a detailed investigation by the Corsham Neighbourhood Team and the Burglary and Serious Youth Gang Violence Team.

“We will not tolerate drug dealing within our community. The supply of drugs can cause untold damage to those in our communities and we will work tirelessly to bring offenders to justice.

“We’d like to take this opportunity to encourage people to keep reporting to us any information about drug supply.

"Any information submitted can help us build a better picture of what is going on, so that we can allocate our resources and take action.”
