Mohammed Dilbar Shabab

Between August 1, 2018 and November 23, 2019, Shabab was involved in the supply of drugs in Chesham and he was arrested while fleeing from an address where white powder was found.

Thames Valley Police took Shabab’s phones which revealed messages offering to supply a controlled substance and he was subsequently charged on 23 March this year.

He was convicted following a two-day trial in court.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Joanne Lynch of Chiltern & South Bucks CID, based at Amersham police station, said: “The supply of drugs cause untold harm to the most vulnerable in our communities and through our Stronghold campaign, we will not tolerate drug dealers on our streets.

“We will never tire to stop this type of criminality, pursuing those who seek to profit from dealing drugs in our communities.

“We are determined to make the Thames Valley a hostile place for this type of criminality, and I am pleased that Shabab will now serve a lengthy prison sentence as a result of his activities.

“If you have any information relating to drug dealing in your area, you can report this to Thames Valley Police either online or by calling 101, or for 100% anonymity, via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
