A 36 year-old man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for his involvement in the production of Methylamphetamine (crystal meth).

Tomasz Kajut, of Swan Lane, Coventry, was stopped by police in his vehicle in Newton Manor Lane, Rugby, in June last year.

When officers searched the vehicle, a quantity of crystal meth with an approximate street value of £3,000 was seized, as well as component parts used in the production of the drug.

Kajut was arrested in relation to the offence as well as for driving without insurance.

Kajut appeared at Coventry Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday), where he pleaded guilty to two counts of being concerned in the production of Methylamphetamine and for driving without insurance.

He was sentenced to a total of eight years imprisonment for the counts of drug production, and received six penalty points for the driving offence.

Detective Sergeant Steve Flavell, from Rugby Proactive CID, said: “This is the only seizure of crystal meth that I have dealt with in my nine years working for Warwickshire Police. Hopefully the substantial sentence handed down by the court will send out the right message that drug offences will not be tolerated within our county, and all offenders will be dealt with robustly.”
