A Slough man has been jailed for two years and eight months for burglary and drug offences in the town.

Twenty-six-year-old Joseph Mwaura, of Bath Road, Slough, pleaded guilty to one count of burglary dwelling and one count of possession of a class B drug, namely cannabis on September 14.

On August 11 in Church Street, Chalvey, Mwaura entered an address and woke the victim, before he demanded money.

The victim didn’t have any money but gave Mwaura a watch, which he took before leaving the property.

Mwaura was arrested on September 13.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Greg Ejegi-Memeh, based at Slough police station said, “I am pleased that Mwaura has been brought to justice.

“This was a distressing situation in which the victim was threatened in his own home, whilst asleep in bed, where he should rightly feel safe.

“He was subjected to a frightening ordeal in which he was also threatened with violence.

“Thames Valley Police does not tolerate this behaviour and we will work tirelessly to bring offenders to justice.”
