Several months later they were both charged on 31 May, 2022.

Investigating officer, PC Ben McNeill, of the Aylesbury Stronghold Team, said: “Drug dealing in our communities is not acceptable and we will take robust action against those who choose to distribute these substances.

“Unsworth and Jackson will now serve time in prison for their actions and I hope this demonstrates that we will bring offenders to justice.
