A West Molesey man has been jailed for 11 years for being concerned in the supply of cocaine and cannabis.

Atthasat Chanamklang was sentenced on January 12 at Winchester Crown Court.

He pleaded guilty to possessing and supplying cannabis but was also found guilty by jury for cocaine supply.

Last July officers conducted a warrant search at his address.

They found a mobile phone referring to the wholesale purchase and onward supply of kilos of cocaine and cannabis.

It also referenced him having people supply drugs for him across North Surrey and London.

Chanamklang was arrested and charged with drug offences, eventually remanded in jail awaiting his trial.

Acting Police Sergeant Benjamin Deacon, the investigating officer, said: “Drug dealers not only believe they are above the law, but they also think that they are a step ahead of police and too smart to be caught.

“Whilst they might enjoy freedom and profit from their crimes for a short while, we will catch them. This case is a perfect example of that.

“Astoundingly, Mr Chanamklang was on probationary licence at the time of the offending, so it is disappointing to see that he learned nothing from his previous incarceration and chose not to take advantage of his second chance.

“For officers investigating this kind of offending information provided by members of the public is crucial.

“Whether through 101, our website, or anonymously Crimestoppers every bit of information helps to convict criminals.”
