A drug dealer who was caught trying to sell cocaine and heroin oversaw a drugs hotline used by Aylesbury junkies.

Darvell Junior Dryden-Allen, 23, of Malvern Road, London, was spotted by police acting suspiciously in Carlton Close, Aylesbury, on Tuesday last week.

When officers spoke to him and obtained his details, they found that his phone number was the same as that of a drugs line in Aylesbury that had been recently established.

Dryden-Allen was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.

During the interview he admitted to having a quantity of class A drugs ‘secreted within his person’, police said in a statement.

These were removed and found to be 40 wraps of crack cocaine and a large package of heroin.

Dryden-Allen was charged on the same day.

He appeared at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday where he pleaded guilty to to one count of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of Class A - crack cocaine and one count of possession with intent to supply a controlled drug of class A - heroin.

He was bailed to appear at Aylesbury Crown Court for sentencing at a date to be confirmed.
