A 25-year-old man has been sentenced for possession with intent to supply class B drugs after drugs and cash were found on him after he was stopped and searched.

Joshua Cramp, of Viridian Square, Aylesbury, was stopped and searched by officers conducting anti-social behaviour patrols in Whitehill Park.

He was found to be in possession of cannabis and an amount of cash.

Police officers subsequently arrested and house was searched. More cannabis, weighing scales and a large amount of cash were found inside.

Cramp was charged with possession with intent to supply class B drugs by postal requisition on Thursday June 18.

He pleaded guilty to the offence at Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on July 13.

Cramp received a community order requiring him to attend rehabilitation appointments and was ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work in the next 12 months

Investigating officer PC Gary Ratcliffe, based at Aylesbury police station, said: “In this case we received reports of anti-social behaviour in Whitehill Park and so were conducting patrols in the area when we came across Cramp. This shows how invaluable stop and search is in tackling drug supply.

“This case also demonstrates how information from the public is essential to police, it not only enables us to respond appropriately to issues as they arise and design our patrol plans to make the biggest impact, but also forms part of a broader intelligence picture which allows us to target supply chains and ensure Aylesbury Vale remains a hostile environment for those intent on committing crime.”

PC Ratcliffe added: “It is now even easier to report information to us about drug dealing, by using the new anti-social behaviour reporting tool on our website, or you can call 101. If you see a drug deal in progress then call us on 999.”
