Thames Valley Police says searches of other homes linked to the 31-year-old, led to the seizure of £6,000 in cash and £17,000 worth of class A drugs.

He was arrested and charged the following day.

Investigating officer PC Ben McNeill, part of the Stronghold Team based in Aylesbury, said: “I am pleased to see that this conviction has resulted in a prison sentence. We work tirelessly to bring offenders to justice and take these drugs off our streets.

“Thames Valley Police remain absolutely committed to pursuing and prosecuting drug dealers, and will continue to make the Thames Valley a hostile place for them to carry out their criminal activities.
