Two London men have been jailed after quantities of cocaine and cannabis were seized during a raid on a property in Eye.

Rhys Shekleton, a 30-year-old from Barnet, and Glyn Shekleton, a 24-year-old from Walthamstow, were sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday, 10 June.

The pair were arrested on January 29 following a police raid on a property in Cranley Green, Eye.

During the raid, drugs, cash and phones were seized by officers.

The men were charged with possession with intent to supply cannabis and cocaine, and with being concerned in the supply of cocaine, cannabis and ketamine.

The offences date between 2016 and 2021.

In addition, Glyn Shekleton was also charged with possession of cannabis and cocaine, and with obstructing a police officer in the execution of their duty.

The defendants had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing.

Rhys Shekleton was handed a 42-month prison sentence, while Glyn Shekleton was jailed for 38 months.

PC Steve Brown, from Suffolk Police's East Scorpion team said: "It is very pleasing to see that two people who have been involved in bringing such misery to our streets will now be locked up for a considerable time.

"The damage caused by drugs is no secret and often disproportionately harms Suffolk's most vulnerable residents.

"Suffolk Constabulary remains committed to tackling those involved in drug supply."
