Four people have been found guilty over an incident involving drugs in Chesham.

They were sentenced on Monday.

Those convicted were:

  • Haseeb Hussain, aged 23, of Dellfield, Chesham
  • Sam Linsley, aged 23, of Thorneycroft Close, Walton on Thames

Ghauri, Hussain and Linsley all admitted a charge each of conspiracy to supply class A drugs, namely cocaine, while Duff pleaded guilty to money laundering.

Ghauri was jailed for eight years and one month, Hussain for four years, Linsley for seven years and two months, while Duff was given a community order and must complete 60 hours of unpaid work.

The charges were in relation to an incident at around 2.45pm on 27 April last year, when Hussain was in possession of a quantity of cocaine, he delivered it to Duff by placing it in her vehicle in East Street, Chesham.

After both Hussain and Duff were arrested, phone evidence showed that Ghauri and Linsley were both involved in the supplying of class A drugs.

All four were charged on 18 February this year.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Alex Hillan, of Loddon Valley police station, said:

“Drug dealing causes untold harm to the most vulnerable people in our communities, and dealers fund their lifestyle at the detriment of other people’s physical and mental health.

“Thames Valley Police, through our Stronghold campaign, will always pursue those who seek to profit from drugs. We will carry out investigations and always look to bring offenders to justice.

“Anyone who has information regarding drugs in the Thames Valley would always be encouraged to make a report to police by calling 101.

“Reports can also be made by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
