A High Wycombe man has been jailed after police saw him try to discard class A drugs.

Kashif Hussain, 20, has been jailed for three years and 10 months after police officers who stopped and searched him in Queens Road on October 10 saw him try to get rid of a quantity of class A drugs.

He was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and charged the next day.

Appearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday, November 14, Hussain, of Rutland Avenue, High Wycombe, pleaded guilty and was jailed from three years and 10 months.

Investigating officer PC Alex Broad, based at High Wycombe police station, said: “Thames Valley Police will never tolerate the supply of drugs in High Wycombe, and this case shows how seriously we treat this type of offence.

“We remain committed through our Stronghold campaign of fighting serious and organised crime and exploitation in partnership.

“I would always urge anybody who has any information about drug dealing in the Thames Valley to please report this to us so that we can continue to fight those who seek to profit from this type of offending.

“Hussain will now serve a spell in prison where he can reflect on his actions and will not be able to carry out his illegal activities on the streets of High Wycombe.”
