Drug dealer jailed for 30 months after being caught with cocaine in Swavesey
A drug dealer caught with cocaine in his possession in Swavesey has been jailed for two-and-half years.
Rexhino Toska, 21, of no fixed abode pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply Class A drugs, possession of false identity documents and driving without insurance and a licence a Cambridge Crown Court on August 9.
He was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment and has been disqualified from driving.
At around 9.45pm on Wednesday, July 10, Toska was pulled over by police whilst driving a Mercedes on High Street, Swavesey after officers observed him acting suspiciously outside a residential address.
Toska produced an Italian driving licence with a different name on and claimed he could not speak any English.
However officers quickly established that this was not the case when Toska failed to communicate with an Italian interpreter over the phone.
Toska subsequently admitted his correct name and date of birth at the scene and officers seized the fake ID.
A search of the Mercedes identified 17 bags of white powder in the driver’s door which was later tested and confirmed as cocaine.
He was additionally found in possession of £450 cash and he was arrested by officers at the scene and taken into Parkside police station.
While in custody, Toska’s details were confirmed and an insurance check highlighted that he was uninsured to drive.
PC Dan Harper said: “Toska was clearly caught in possession of cocaine and we are working tirelessly to tackle drug dealing in the county and bring those involved in this type of criminality before the courts.
“I hope the sentencing acts as a deterrent and encourages those who choose to carry and sell drugs in Cambridge to re-think.”
