Five convictions on Friday took the total number of years dished out as part of Operation Rinderpest to 48 as police struck a hammer blow to the drug trade in the towns.
The dawn raids carried out in March resulted in 24 arrests after a quantity of Class A drugs and stolen property was recovered.
A total of 160 police officers battered down doors at drug dens across the two towns.
Superintendent Robin Rickard, the West Berkshire Commander, said a clear message had been sent that drug dealing would not be tolerated in Newbury or Thatcham.
“Protecting the public is the most important role for the police, the communities of Newbury and Thatcham will now be protected from the damage that these criminals caused both directly from drug dealing and indirectly through encouraging, often vulnerable people, to commit crime in order to buy illegal drugs,” he said.
The following people were sentenced on Friday (19):
