A Chesham man has been jailed for over a year and half after detectives busted a major drugs ring in the town.

Mohibur Rahman, 31, of Highfield Road, Chesham, has been put behind bars for a year and eight months - after police raided a house and found large amounts of cannabis and cash.

The raid was carried out in Highfield Road on January 13.

Rahman, who police say had a "significant role" in the supply of drugs in the town, was arrested that day and charged the next (January 14).

He appeared at Aylesbury Crown Court on Tuesday, February 18, and pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to supply a class B drug and one count of possession of criminal property.

At the same hearing he was sentenced to one year and eight months’ behind bars.

Investigating officer, PC Harley Richardson, based at Amersham police station said: “Rahman had a significant role in the supply of drugs across Chesham and the neighbouring areas.

“He profited considerable amounts of cash from the crimes he committed which has been recovered along with the controlled substances.

“This sentence highlights the seriousness of supplying drugs and Thames Valley Police’s commitment through the Stronghold campaign to tackling these offences.”
