Younes Bardallou was handed a two year, 11-month jail sentence

The 25-year-old was arrested outside his house at around 4pm the day before, after Thames Valley Police officers spotted him committing a suspected drug deal.

A subsequent search of the Aylesbury man's house revealed cocaine with a street value of around £900. Officers also confiscated Bardallou's phone.

Police analysis showed Bardallou to be in charge of a drugs line in Aylesbury.

Officers believe Bardallou was able to mastermind drug deals even when he was abroad, this summer.

One damning message uncovered by the police on Whatsapp read: “it’s so hard finding runners when you’re out of the country", and: “call my line, see if they answer.”
