Kalas appeared at Winchester Crown Court on Monday 8 April and was jailed for a total of 44 months.

PC Dan Bilton, from Hart and Rushmoor District CID, said: “We take drug activity and knife crime extremely seriously and I’m pleased to say that this sentence means another drug dealer will be off our streets for a significant period of time. I hope the result highlights that our officers will do everything in their power to ensure Hart and Rushmoor is not targeted by drugs networks.

“We know that drug supply causes harm and misery to our communities. Our officers are determined to keep relentlessly pursuing criminals to reduce the negative impact they have on the local community, making it safe for everyone.”
