A drug dealer from Burnham is due to be sentenced at Reading Crown Court on December 6 for his involvement in a conspiracy to supply cocaine.
William Hearn, 27, of Orchardville, was one of 13 people to be convicted after an investigation by the Thames Valley Police Serious and Organised Crime Unit (SOCU), which began in January 2012.
Hearn was arrested after a raid at his home on February 11.
He admitted two counts of conspiracy to supply cocaine at Reading Crown Court on June 14.
Eight other people were sentenced on Thursday and Monday to serve a total of 65 and a half years.
Detective Sergeant Stuart Brangwin, from the SOCU, said: “This was a lengthy and complex investigation into 13 defendants with four different conspiracies to supply drugs.
“The defendants were all aware of the part they played in the supply and distribution of heroin and cocaine on a large scale and I am pleased with the sentences handed out to them.
"The lengthy prison sentences should act as a deterrent to others who are involved in the supply of controlled drugs.
