A quantity of class A drugs was recovered and following a search of an address linked to Kamau, further quantities of crack cocaine and heroin were seized to a value of more than £1,000.

Kamau was charged the following day (20/4) and remanded in custody, before pleading guilty to the offences.

Investigating officer PC Ben McNeill of the Aylesbury Stronghold team, said: “We will relentlessly pursue and prosecute drug dealers, who cause untold harm in our communities.

“Through the Thames Valley Police Stronghold campaign, we will actively target those who seek to exploit vulnerable individuals to their own ends and we will not rest until a County Line or a crime group is no more.

“Kamau will now serve a prison sentence as a result of his criminal activity, and I hope that this conviction will serve as a warning to others who seek to profit from such offences.

“Our communities are important to us in tackling these issues, and I would urge anybody who has any information about drug supply to please report this to Thames Valley Police on 101 or online.

“You are also able to report 100% anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555
