Five men from High Wycombe have been jailed following a police operation to crack down on drug dealing across Bucks.

Matthew Glenister, of Desborough Road, Alfi Toye, of Deeds Grove, Ramah Lampkin, of Rowan Avenue, Shane Lovett, formerly of Abercromby Avenue and Joshua Robert Peters, of no fixed abode but who resides in High Wycombe, were put behind bars for a string of drugs offences in High Wycombe.

It comes after more than 250 officers from TVP and the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit (SEROCU) executed 16 warrants in High Wycombe, one in Aylesbury and one in Wembley as part of operation Rowlock in July this year.

A total of 13 people were charged following the raids and more than £5,000 was handed over, which police said will go to local charities.

Glenister, Toye, Lampkin, Lovett and Peters each pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to supply cocaine and one count of conspiracy to supply heroin at Aylesbury Crown Court yesterday (Tuesday), and their convictions and sentencing related to their involvement in a conspiracy to supply cocaine and heroin in High Wycombe between August 4 2016 and May 17 2017, except Lovett’s whose involvement was between August 4 2016 and August 26 2016.

They were sentenced as follows:

  • Glenister, 31, was jailed for five years and four months
  • Peters, 24, was jailed for four years, 10 months and two weeks
  • Lampkin, 20, was sentenced to four years behind bars
  • Lovett, 29, was sentenced to two years behind bars
  • Toye, 19, was jailed for one year and eight months

Senior investigating officer, detective inspector Sally Spencer of the investigation hub, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “I am pleased that our priority to tackle serious and organised crime has led to these men being convicted and sentenced.

“In High Wycombe we are dedicated to tackling those who seek to deal drugs.

“In order to continue this work we need the public's help as we need them to keep providing information and intelligence to us so that we can target those who make other people's lives a misery through drugs supply.”
