A teenage boy and an 18 year old have been jailed over drug dealing in Aylesbury.

The police found they were in possession of 77 wraps of crack cocaine and 44 wraps of heroin. 

Both pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine.

Usman Raja, 18, of Crown Leys, Aylesbury, pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply heroin and one count of possession with intent to supply at a hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on 21 March 2019.

A teenage boy from Aylesbury, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also pleaded guilty to the same charges at the same hearing.

Raja was sentenced to a total of three years’ imprisonment.

The teenage boy was sentenced to a total of 18 months’ imprisonment.

They were both sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday 12 April 2019.

On 22 January 2019 at around 1.20pm officers have seen Raja dealing drugs in Aylesbury. Officers arrested him.

Following further investigation another arrest was made of the teenage boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

Both were arrested and charged on 22 January 2019.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Mark Kates, of Aylesbury Vale CID, said:

“These arrests and convictions were as a result of proactive policing and quick thinking by neighbourhood and Stronghold police officers.

“A large quantity of class A drugs have been taken off the streets of Aylesbury and sends the message that if you choose to deal drugs we will catch you, we will investigate and put you before the courts to face justice.

“Drug dealing effects our communities and it will not be tolerated with the Aylesbury Vale or in the Thames Valley.”
