On November 4 last year, Thames Valley Police officers spotted a suspicious vehicle in Birinus Close in High Wycombe.

A strong smell of cannabis was coming from the car, empowering the officers to approach and search the 28-year-old.

Hussain was detained under section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Officers found a large quantity of money in Hussain's possession and arrested him on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

Hussain was formally charged the following day.
