Investigating officer, PC James Devonald of the Chiltern & South Bucks Stronghold team, said: “I am pleased that we have swiftly brought Khalid to justice, and he has been sentenced to prison as a result.

“Khalid’s arrest was as a result of an intelligence-led drugs warrant, and I hope that our actions will send a stern message to others who seek to deal drugs in our communities that we will never tolerate such criminal activity.

“Thames Valley Police’s Stronghold teams will proactively and robustly pursue drug dealers, who cause such great harm to our communities, often targeting and exploiting vulnerable individuals.

“We remain committed to removing drugs and drug dealers from our communities and we will continue to seek, disrupt, and make the Thames Valley a hostile place for serious and organised criminals to commit such acts.”
