Bucks man jailed over six drug & weapon offences

A 20-year-old from Stone, just outside Aylesbury, has been jailed after officers found he had over £4,000 worth of Class A & B drugs.

Bradley Ruby pleaded guilty to six offences in November but was sentenced yesterday (28/1).

Aylesbury CID officers had worked a 22-hour shift to make sure he was caught back in July 2019.

  • two counts of possessing a firearm without a firearm certificate
  • one count of possession of a prohibited weapon, pepper spray

Ruby was charged on Wednesday 17 July last year following his arrest on 16 July which resulted from a search warrant under Section 23 of Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Dale Price of Aylesbury Vale CID, said:

“This was a long and complex investigation, which resulted in the seizure and removal from our streets of two firearms, ammunition, a section five firearm (pepper spray) and over £4,000 worth of class A and B drugs that would have been supplied into the community.

“I would like to thank the public for their assistance in this case.

DS Price continued:

“I hope this sends out a message to all, that Thames Valley Police will act proactively and robustly to deal with any such serious and dangerous offences to protect the public and bring offenders to justice.

“The Area CID team worked a 22-hour shift to ensure that the offender was charged and remanded – a fine example of the officers’ commitment to protecting the public and removing dangerous firearms from the streets.

“Our new campaign True Costs is also highlighting and exploring the devastating harm of drug use on our communities.

“Children as young as 12 have been found to be involved in the drugs trade in the Thames Valley."

Currently there are a number of active organised crime groups involved in the supply of drugs in the community, these groups exploit children and target vulnerable teenagers to involve them in the drug trade.
